"Bee" Mine

I found this Lemon Sugar Cookie recipe on Pinterest.  I was looking for something tasty to decorate for Valentines Day. I was all set to try my hand at decorating with Royal Icing.  Turns out I must have thrown away my ancient jar of meringue powder so that will have to wait for another day.  But that's alright, because the lemon icing for these little cookies is so divine, who needs Royal Icing?
 So lemon cookies it is. I had the little sugar bees and I think they get the "Bee Mine" message across just fine :)
 The hand carved heart spoon is a gift from my Valentine of 35+ years.  Oh Earl, you know just how to make my heart go pitter patter.
We will probably stay in for Valentines Day. Do a little cooking together, grab a movie on Netflix. We both hate crowds, dinner out and a movie can be saved for another night.  How about you? Are you staying in or going out? Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends!
