oh my gosh, valentines day is in a week and i know your probably up to your eyeballs in everything valentines but these are just too stinkin' cute not to share!!!

the gals over at one charming party always have THE cutest ideas!
and this is no exception!

okay these are a MUST-DO. go on over and visit the decorated cookie to get the low down on these fun treats!
how cute would this be for a teachers gift or for a special someone!
LOVE it!
and one last thing for the gals at fat quarters! i {heart} them!

i know i've shared this cookie recipe before, but seriously. it is THE BEST sugar cookie recipe i've tried (and i've tried ALOT)

i got the recipe from a friend but i do believe it originated from pam.
and if you haven't visited pam over at stirring it up with pam, your missing out! seriously!

here's the BEST EVER sugar cookie recipe!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar

1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbls. evaporated milk

mix in:
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

roll out dough between 2 sheets of wax paper. place in fridge until firm. cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. frost after they completely cool. bake at 375 for 6-8 min.

The yummy icing!
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbls corn syrup
2 Tbls water
1 tsp almond extract
food coloring


P.S. and hello...this post is made possible because of the love and encouragement of my beautiful daughter, loving mom, and dedicated friend who are constantly harrassing me because i am not updating my blog to their satisfaction ;) {love you guys A TON!} now leave me alone i have to organize my sewing room!

Julie .... Have tried your sugar cookies with my grandkids and they are great. You also make a lot of cupcakes. Would you be kind enough to share your cupcake/frosting recipe with your followers.
