...on cookies!

I love to bake.  LOVE to bake.  I have always wanted to make pretty sugar cookies with lovely icing and I have never had success.  You know the ones I'm talking about, right?  The ones that you would go buy at a bakery for a shower or wedding or something with pretty piping and smooth icing?  I decided to make some heart shaped cookies for valentine's day so I googled up some recipes and landed on Martha Stewart's website.  I used her recipe for sugar cookies and icing but I used half sugar and half agave nectar in the cookies because that's what I had on hand.  These cookies were seriously easy and I had a lot of fun making them.  It took a little longer than it would have three months ago because I had to do some of the piping and icing with a little dude on my hip.  I can't wait until he is old enough to bake with me!   Oh, I used up all of my red food coloring the last time I baked a red velvet cake so my hearts are blue and green.
