Move over, Christmas! Thanks to Fearless Dining, Valentine’s Day may stake a new claim on Linzer cookies. In this gluten-free version, the classic cookie is given a romantic update courtesy of pink-tinged dough, a dusting of powdered sugar and, naturally, a sweetheart shape.
Fall in love with breakfast all over again when you serve it to someone special in bed. Flourishing Foodie’s heart-shaped whole wheat banana pancakes are a no-brainer since you probably already have the ingredients on hand. And, you know, they’re cute, too.
Talk about a true showstopper! If you want to pull out all the stops this Valentine’s Day, The Preppy Hostess’ picture-perfect cherry pie is obviously your destiny. It requires a bit more time than your standard confectionary fare, but the look on your loved one’s face when they see it will make the wait worth it.
OK, so technically these cookies aren’t shaped like hearts. However, the cutesy way Mom Loves Baking appropriates Swedish Fish candies to create a heart-shaped center makes this recipe a shoo-in for inclusion in your V-Day plans.
