Frosted Heart Cookies

Frosted Heart Cookies

If your Valentine’s Day plans include sweet treats in any form, these cookies need to happen in your life. Like, right now. This very second. Because never have I ever found a more perfect frosted sugar cookie in the history of sugar cookies.

I kid you not.

Frosted Heart Cookies

These cookies are EVERYTHING. Light. Incredibly soft. Like you’re eating a pillow on top of a  cloud soft. Just the perfect amount of sweet. So cake-y that it’s hardly fair to even call them cookies. And topped with the most perfect buttercream frosting that will make you wish you could take back every other sugar cookie you’ve ever eaten and replace it with these.

Big claims, I know.

They’re also stinking adorable. I mean, just look at those sweet hearts with the pink and red sprinkles. Swoon.

You should make these today for all of the people you love. Your significant other. Your best girlfriends. Your kiddos. Your neighbors. Your barista. Your mailman. Because nothing says “I love you” like the most perfect cookies you’ve ever tasted.

Happy Valentines Day! With love, N.

Christmas Cookie Round-Up

Gingerbread BellsI’m not sure if you’ve heard the news yet, but there are only four days until Christmas.

Four. days.

If you’re one of those people who is ridiculously on top of things, I’m sure you’ve had your shopping done for a month now and have already baked twelve dozen cookies in fourteen different varieties and have absolutely no need for one more cookie recipe this holiday season. If that’s you, I congratulate you. Also, please know that I’m not-so-secretly hating you right now (and also begging you to please share your secret. Please. How do you do it?)

If you were previously unaware of the fact that you only have four days left to bake those Christmas cookies for your toddler’s class party on Monday, this post is for you.

I’ve rounded up my all-time favorite Christmas cookies recipes in one neat and tidy post, just in time for your next holiday party. All of these recipes are tried-and-true favorites in our household, and I promise you can’t go wrong with any of them.

Pumpkin Spice French Macarons

Pumpkin Spice French Macarons

I have a serious love affair with pumpkin.

And while I realize that this is, quite possibly, the most unoriginal statement that I could write in this generation of pumpkin-obsessed, UGG boot-wearing, fall-loving 20-somethings, it’s the truth.

I. love. pumpkin. everything.

Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin coffee. Pumpkin candles. Pumpkin cookies. Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin yogurt.

But let’s be clear about one thing.  I loved pumpkin long before loving pumpkin was cool.

I’m not just a bandwagon pumpkin lover. Oh no. Pumpkin and I go waaaaay back. Back before that Starbucks barista marked “PSL” on a white cup for the very first time, before Trader Joe’s carried 500 different pumpkin-flavored items, pumpkin and I were a thing.

I’ve had years to cultivate a very sophisticated pumpkin-inspired palate, and I have to say, I’ve outdone myself this time.

Let’s just call these little bites of heaven my “Happy Autumn!” gift to you. From one pumpkin-lover to another, you’re welcome.
