Valentine's Kiss Cookies

I baked these cookies tonight to give to Jon for Valentine’s Day tomorrow. Obviously you can have them anytime of year but to me the kisses make it kind of a cute Valentine’s treat. They turned out a little golden around the edges so next time I may shave a minute off of the bake time. If you are looking for a last-minute cookie idea for tomorrow or just love cookies like I do, you should bake these ones!

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
