Recipes: Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies

              Hey y'all! :) It's almost the weekend, woo hoo. I wanted to share a wonderful (probably the best) sugar cookie recipe yet. My aunt Carri's and grandma's is pretty awesome but this is right up there in the same ball park. So good!! Mam made these for Christmas and everyone loved them and I knew I had to make them for Valentine's Day and share with you all. The best part is they aren't overly sweet, sounds weird with it being a sugar cookie but they are so delicious!

            I hope you all have fun weekend plans. We are heading to Indiana to spend time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy your Friday and weekend ahead and of course this recipe. Make this for your significant other or for your kids, because it's a good one. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentine's Day! xoxo
