You've stolen a piece of my heart

This week I discovered something not very nice about myself. I get cranky if I don't bake something every few days. I don't necessarily have to eat it, I just have to bake and create something. I was feeling extra cranky on Friday so I pulled some butter out of the freezer, and already I felt a little nicer. I decided to bake something for Valentines Day. We're not big on celebrating the holiday in our house, but as an excuse to bake, it's a good one. I  decided to bake sugar cookies in the shape if, what else, hearts! While I love the look of iced sugar cookies, I don't love the taste. I find them too cloyingly sweet with all that royal icing.
