Flowers are always a big part of Valentines Day, but this year try a little flour instead. There are not many years here in Minnesota that we can Heart Attack our neighbor’s lawn with white hearts but looks like this may be  the year since we are lacking the other white stuff. If somehow here is a  normal snowfall for the day of romance, we will use our red snow paint instead of the flour.

The House That Lars Built  shares this really easy  flourfull idea.

Materials: flour, sifter, bowl, large paper, scissors, pencil

Step 1: Draw a large heart onto a piece of large paper (over 11×17″). I found that the bigger the heart the better it turned out. Smaller hearts don’t show up very well.

Step 2: Cut out heart.

Step 3: Pour a large amount of flour into the sifter over heart shape. Start with the edge of the heart and work towards the center.

So, go ahead and give your neighbors a heart attack this Valentines Day!

Shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press chocolate candy into top of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 20 minutes, before storing in tightly covered container.

HINT: For even baking, make sure cookies are the same size. Cookie dough can be covered and refrigerated up to 24 hours before baking. If it’s too firm, let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
