Love Decoration Cookie

It is warm again during the day but freezing at night with a cold wind. Brrrrr...

This is another Valentine's day recipe ;)
I decorated a heart shaped cookie with a 3D LOVE message.

Love Decoration Cookie

pink chocolate pen or pink colored icing
sprinkles of your choice

1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, add egg yolk and mix well.

3. Press and shape dough into one and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour to chill.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

I had sake with my friend tonight. I drank it after a long time, so I was dizzy for few hours... but I am okay now! Wow it is 2AM already!!! I think I should go to bed.
