The best way to ask someone to be your valentine? Homemade Valentine’s Day cookies, of course. Also, does anyone still ask that anymore?
Sure, you could craft a cute paper valentine, but it won’t be nearly as delicious. But pink velvet cookies? Chocolate-dipped teddy bear Oreos? Heart-shaped jammy Linzer cookies? Now those a true valentine make. To be clear, we would say yes. Wink wink.
Whatever you go with, whip up a batch (or three) of some Valentine’s Day cookies to impress your crush, coworkers, gal pals, or all of the above.
