Strawberry Cut Out Cookies with Chocolate Icing

Strawberry Cut Out Cookies with Chocolate Icing @createdbydiane

It’s all about the pink today.

It’s Valentine’s Day!

There is pink and red everywhere I turn.

I even painted the tray pink to match the cookies, which now that I’m looking at it might have been a bit much. But I really like the tray in pink, maybe just not with pink cookies on top of it. Maybe they match too much!

Well it certainly didn’t affect the yumminess of the cookies at all. Because really there can not be anything wrong with chocolate and strawberry if you ask me.

These cookies have a sweet, light strawberry flavor and are iced with chocolate icing.

They remind me a little of chocolate covered strawberries, which I happen to LOVE. Thinking of chocolate covered strawberries has me thinking of these delicious Chocolate and Strawberry Scones which would be perfect on Valentine’s Day. I hope to have enough time to whip up a batch of those before the day is over.

    Hi, I was thinking of making these for my long distance boyfriend, and I was wondering if the chocolate icing will become solid after a short period of time. I wanted to make these to send it out to him, and I would like to send them as fresh as possible.
