Tomorrow is Valentine's Day! I hope you're all planning lots of sweet gifts and surprises for the people that you love. Today I made these Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies and they are delish! I used India Tree's colored sprinkles, made without artificial dyes and they are perfectly lovable.

Roll the dough into 24 cookie balls and roll the balls into sugar.
