Hey!! Today is a cool day, like a super cool awesome day because it includes ombre cookies!
That are pink and just perfect for Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day or for any day, because honestly pink cookies just make everything pretty cool.
Also, have you see that cute recipe binder over there?
I spend 3/4 of my life in the kitchen baking, and since I develop most of the recipes that you read here there is a lot of scribbling/writing/checking things to make sure that I’m giving you the right measurements (yeah baby I’m the crash test dummy).
I used to do this on my computer, until I discovered it was a bad idea because my hands, when I’m baking, are full of sugar/sprinkles/flour/frosting/whatever I’m baking at the moment, delicious? sure! good for my keyboard? not at all.
So I started looking for other options, and I came up with this binder!
Beautiful right? Well, the awesome girl behind Paper+Spark creates girly and fun paper products and this binder is one of those things, and… wait for it, they are personalized!
I felt like a total rockstar when I saw the name of the blog on the cover, so yeah totally cool gift for the Holidays too (psst, they send you some free tags ) + they have a super cool discount code for the readers of the blog, you can type POP10 for a 10% off (yay for discounts!)
Now, back to the cookies, there’s nothing more awesome than making treats that look as good as they taste, and since Valentine’s Day is all about pink and there’s no easiest thing to make than cookies, I decided to bake some, and that’s how these ombre cookies were born.
The recipe is the same of the lemon cookies that I shared a couple of weeks ago, the only thing that is different is that I dyed the frosting in various shades of pink
If you are looking for a super simple gift just put them inside a cellophane bag and tie it with a bow.
My friend you are going to be handing out the best gift ever, trust me on that one.
