Do you have plans already for the 14th? Whether you do or don’t is actually no matter… I’ve always thought cupid’s day was more about good girly fun than relying on any Mr. to make it festive. So why not have a ladies cookie making party? Cut-out cookies after all are way too much work all on your own!
Some tried and true tips from a veteran cookie decorating party thrower (5 years in a row!):
1. You absolutely have to make at least several batches of dough ahead of time or your guests will be twiddling their thumbs. I highly recommend my friend Mitra’s sugar cookie recipe. Sneak peak: the secret ingredient for non-flat cookies is sour cream.
3. Ask each gal to B.H.O.A. (Bring Her Own Apron) unless you have a hefty stack of your own.
4. Top your decorative tablecloth with a clear protective table cloth that wipes down easily because this will get messy I promise.
