Conversation heart cookies creation was in full effect today as the girls celebrated St. Valentine's Day. The activity began in the kitchen with mixing bowls and a happy little helper.
Little sister was napping at the moment but she joined us later in the process...
The loud mixer was a bit scary but the big wooden spoon contained the right amount of fun and challenge. Audrey looks on in the hope that a few special treats were in store for her.
alas...Xian learned one of the best parts about being a cook - taste tests!
Sage finally woke up and provided some interesting pointers that were necessary to get the cookies colors just right.
In a joint effort, the girls then rolled out the dough and stamped out hearts (ok, ok, Mom helped a bit.)
The cookies went into the oven and were decorated once cooled.
Finally, the cooks gorged themselves on conversation hearts. Happy Valentine's Day!
