Strawberry Dream Cookies are exactly that – a dream. With a delectable frosting and all the sprinkles you could handle, they’re Valentine’s Day perfection.
February is such a weird month. My skin is all pale and itchy, everything is cold and boring, and the one holiday we get is kind of super lame.
Unless you count the Super Bowl, which is KIND of a holiday, but with hot wings and beer instead of turkey, which I’m honestly okay with.
If only we could do away with the whole football part of it, it might just be the perfect day.
But no. Here we are with Valentine’s Day. And spoiler alert – Valentine’s Day isn’t here to be our friend.
Here we are with our itchy winter skin, thick sweaters, and chicken pot pie bodies, and Valentine’s Day is all…YOU’RE NOT TRULY LOVED UNLESS SOMEONE SENDS YOU FLOWERS, YOU LONELY, UNLOVED, ITCHY PERSON.
Call me crazy, but a day full of mashed potatoes, casseroles, and champagne isn’t such a bad idea in comparison.
Unfortunately, I don’t think that I have what it takes to make this happen. Have you seen how hardcore they market this Valentine’s Day business lately?
The Christmas clearance isn’t even cold yet and here are the heart shaped boxes of chocolates, front and center.
WE ARE ALL LONELY AND PALE AND MADE BAD FOOD CHOICES LAST MONTH. WE GET IT. STOP RUBBING IT IN, VALENTINE’S DAY.
I mean honestly, what a jerk.
I have heard the saying, “If you can’t beat them, join them,“ and I suppose there might be something to it. So my recommendation for “joining them” is making a batch of these super easy (and totally delicious) pink cookies slathered with frosting.
And then spend Valentine’s Day eating them all while binge-watching old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy.
I’m no expert, but really think I’m on to something.
