Over the last two years of living in China, I have received several care packages from sweet, thoughtful friends. One of the things I often request are cookie mixes. It is hard to find good flour and supplies over here and since I really don't bake often, I decided that even though I prefer "from scratch" cookies, mixes are just more practical. Therefore, I have received many!
This week I was in the mood to bake and decided that Valentine's Day was the perfect day to bake cookies. The frosting, however, IS from scratch. It turned out pretty well! I just wish I had food coloring so I could make it pink, but I don't. No candy hearts to put on top so mini M&M's had to do.
We have a couple families over here and so I was able to share my sweet treat with them. After all, I don't want these delicious goodies in my apartment because with my sweet tooth, we know what would happen.
Happy Valentine's Day from China!
