Happy Valentine's Day

Today Kiki and Shannon and I made Valentines day cutout cookies. We used my mom's famous Christmas cutouts which are also featured on Epicurious (who knew).

4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda, salt, nutmeg
1 cup butter
1 ½ cup sugar
1 egg
½ sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Mix and break into four sections. Wrap in plastic and allow to chill overnight.

Shannon did such a great job. She really got into rolling, patting and playing with the dough. We had a heart shaped cookie cutter that was perfect. I couldn't believe that we held her attention for so long up on that kitchen stool just like a big girl.

The frosting of the cookies didn't go as well. At one point Shannon had the spoon with a hunk of frosting on the way to her mouth and that's when we decided the grown-ups should take over the frosting.

Finished product were fantastic.
