Pink Heart Cookies!

I love to make pink heart cookies for Valentine's day!
It's a lot of fun, especially if you have a nephew to help.
You do have to have some time.
First you let the butter soften to barely room temperature,
and you gather your ingredients.
Then you let your nephew mix them all up:

My recipe calls for rolling the dough to about 1/4" thick,
between two sheets of waxed paper,
which sounds like a pain but actually saves a lot of dough-sticking
to the rolling pin and other cleanup hassles.
You then refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes
(while you make your nephew address his valentines for school)
and then he can cut the cookies out:

Baking them took longer than I expected,
and then I had to wait for them to cool,
before I frosted them with pink buttercream frosting,
(and let them sit overnight before you store them/stack them)
but aren't they BEAUTIFUL??

Oh yes, and we need a quality check, too!
It looks like they're good!

It's always more fun to do baking with others. They look yummy!
