My Cookies are Still Naked

Stay up all night decorating cookies and hate life or eat naked cookies and love life?


The icing is still stored properly so I can bust it out at any time. Maybe tomorrow or maybe not. Mark's new trick is opening the piping bags and dunking the cookies into the pink. I like the cookies as is.

Because of my distaste for weakness and empathy and heartfelt concern, it's a little known fact that I'm a sucker for Valentine's Day. (It's also a little know fact that I have an elaborate boar hunting fantasy, but that's for a different post.) My wedding anniversary? Haven't remembered it in years. Christmas? More and more it's just another dark day. Thanksgiving? If you've seen one Tofurkey, you've seen 'em all.

But Valentine's is special. It brings out my inner school girl and makes me want pink and red and purple heart shaped anything. Which is to say, I think I'll make more heart shaped cookies next weekend—take the easy way out and decorate them with pink and red and purple sugar. Bring them into work. Share the love.


  1. Who knew? Valentines Day? Fabulous! I love the cookies naked, they are beautiful in their simplicity and I wish I had about three to gobble down right now with a glass of milk. The frosting would be icing on the cake...well, you know.

  2. I was thinking icing with a spoon but yes! to dunking the cookies in. Dammit, I need a cookie!

  3. BT: They've been sitting on the table for days and they're still fantastic.

    J: I really am I total sucker for valentine's day.
