Heartfelt Cookie Wreaths

Happy 2nd Blogiversary to me!
Wow, has it been 2 years?!!
Thank you so much for all of you who have sent me nice emails, left comments, and told me stories about your own kitchen adventures over the last 2 years. You've really warmed my heart and this blog has been so fun for me.

So, to tell you how much you've meant to my heart, I created these "heartfelt" wreath cookies...Make a batch and share them with someone you love.

Little C took a plate of these to preschool for her birthday treat and loved sharing them with her friends. I think they'd be cute with a bag of hot cocoa and a note that says "your friendship has warmed our hearts this year!"

Heartfelt Cookie Wreaths
Sugar Cookie Dough (I used Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix)
green food coloring
small heart cookie cutter (I used a 1/2" pastry cutter)
string licorice
royal icing or white chocolate (to "glue" on the licorice bows)
sprinkles, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Tint sugar cookie dough with green food coloring. Roll out dough to 1/4" thickness and cut out hearts.....lots of hearts.....
Arrange hearts in a circle, it takes about 11 of them. Add various sprinkles.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes, until barely brown. Let cool completely. Take a string of licorice and tie into a bow. Attach to cookies with melted white chocolate or royal icing.
