Valentine Treats

The winter storm today brought back memories of Valentine's Day. I wanted to share treats with some special friends and family so I decided to focus my attention on sweets. Perhaps my favorite item was Cupid's Mix which was featured in the premier issue of Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade magazine. I also tried my hand at using Fancy Flours wafer papers on sugar cookies. It proved to be challenging, so I think more practice is in order. Since I already had some heart shaped sugar cookies, I frosted some with royal icing and piped a pink rose on top. Chocolate covered pretzel rods were also a hit, you can't go wrong with the salty and sweet combination. To round out the goody baskets I made heart shaped pecan sandies which were dusted with a coating of powdered sugar. A project like this is time consuming, but oh so rewarding!
