So Delicious Dairy Free 3 Course Recipe Contest BadgeLily says, “Have you ever wanted to give your special someone in your life a cookie from your heart. If you make these cookies, you can give them one or more from your heart to theirs. Valentines’ Day would be a great day to gift these heart cookies. They have a firm but soft texture with a slight crisp. The icing pairs well with the cookie and gives it that needed touch of love! They are great with a cup of pink tea. So give your sweetheart a pink vegan treat! You will be full of heart if you do (and so will they)!”
