Treats for Sweets-Happy Valentine’s Day!

14 Feb

We made these for Valentine’s Day in my Mommy & Me cooking class, then Bella and I made them again for her class Valentine’s party.  They’re really cute, and really easy.  I normally frown upon things like refrigerated pie dough, but these are more novelty than confection, so I made an exception.

You’ll need slips of paper about 2″ by 1/4″.  Write your fortunes in non-toxic marker, then cut them out – much easier than writing on itty-bitty pieces of paper.

Lay out a circle of pie dough and use a 3″ cookie cutter to cut out 7 rounds.  Brush just the edges with water, then place a folded fortune in the middle.  The paper will stick to the water, so try not to get the fortune wet.  Fold over and press gently to seal.  Then gently pinch the corners and fold them together.  Lay on a lined baking sheet.

*Older kids can help write fortunes and fold the cookies.   Younger kids can brush the tops with water and decorate.*

Brush the tops very lightly with water, and sprinkle with colored sugar.  Bake in a 350° oven for 20 minutes, until just beginning to brown around the edges.  Remove from oven, cool, and package in Chinese take-out containers  (you can find these at a craft store).
