Guest Recipe Monday: The Valentine’s Basket

Back by popular demand, we thought we’d remind readers of Our Valentine Basket Idea!

Right before Mother’s Day last year, an Immaculate Baking fan told me about the “baked” basket she planned to deliver to her new-mom sister.  I’ve been playing with this great idea for Valentine’s Day, so I hit the kitchen, armed with Vanilla Sugar and Gluten Free  Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough. I also brought along some popsicle sticks, frosting, and lots of decorating sugar toppings.

Easy start

I put some of the Vanilla Sugar cookies on popsicle sticks, some of the Gluten Free Jumbo cookies in mini-muffin tins, and then I baked a bunch the regular old way. Once the oven was preheated, I tossed everything in.

Once everything was baked and cooled, I enlisted the troops (by bribing them with cookie-pops) to help decorate and arrange the basket. I know this is a trial run, but I’m making up some of these baskets for Valentine’s Day. Any great Valentine Baking ideas? Send them along!
