Hello Everyone! It’s Aniko from Place Of my Taste. I am so glad to be back sharing something sweet with you all today!With Valentine’s Day fast approaching , I thought I should bring you something cute and lovely. If you like to give something homemade for your Valentine, look no further.

I am sharing the cutest stamped Sugar Cookie Recipe with you.

Stapmed Cookies by Place Of My TasteAren’t they the sweetest looking little cookies?

I spotted these cookies in Parents magazine. They looked a little different in the magazine and they suggested to use regular letter stamps to stamp short words { love, hugs, mine, etc } on the cookies. I did not have letter stamps at home, so I decided to make my own stamps out of potatoes.

Yep…that’s right.

I did not make my cookies completely flat before I baked them and they came out a little thicker……but they were so soft an fluffy.

And now the best part…

Do you see those little hands stamping on the cookies? My kids loved participating in this fun and messy cookie making project.
