“Love Bug” Sugar Cookies

Love Bug Sugar Cookies Once upon a time (like in September:) this crazy daycare lady thought I’d just free-hand cut some honey-bee and butterfly sugar cookies during “B” is for Bugs & Butterflies week at daycare.

Unfortunately this didn’t really work out.  While my attempts looked decent they took WAY too long with my four young charges at foot, especially with Lil’ Lady teething (i.e. NOT so happy:)

Scrambling, I decided to peruse my cookie cutter collection…hoping that some miscellaneous cutter could be manipulated to allow “quick” post-snack, pre-lunch cookie cutting  of the (sort-of) bug-like variety.

And then I spotted it…a HEART.  A touch of quick-thinking (and a whole lot of desperation) later and I had it: “LOVE BUGS.”

The girlies were very excited with the new direction (and LOVED using cookie cutters).

My Love Bugs

You should have seen MY outfit:)

I used Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie recipe as well as their Powdered Sugar Icing.  Why mess with a classic, right?  For the black detailing I mixed the icing much thicker then the recipe dictates and just used Ziploc bags with the tips cut off to decorate.

All-in-all I’d say they turned out super cute and would definitely be adorable for Valentines Day, don’t you?

Thanks for taking a look!

Blue Skies & Blessings, Lindsey
