Little Bites of Love

love in biscuit form

With Valentines Day having just been and gone and what with me getting married this year, I have come over all romantic. Valentines Day is not a day I usually celebrate. I am all about love everyday not just one. However it is a great excuse to bake and also remind people that we think they are frickin awesome.

So with that said, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make some little heart shaped biscuits to spread some love and sweet goodness around. 

These were so simple and quick to make, so if you are looking for a way to share the love tomorrow or simply make some other folks smile why not give these a go.

Also before I forget it goes with out saying Happy Valentines Day – I frickin love you guys – thanks so much for reading and sharing this journey.

Have an amazing day!
