Valentine's Day Cookies & Cheesecake

I've never really done anything big or surprising on Valentine's day. I usually run to the supermarket the day before to buy a card and some goodies. Store-bought desserts can certainly be tasty, but nothing says "I love you," quite like homemade treats.



I used Sweetamb's "Simple Valentine's Day Cookies" tutorial as a guide to make these delicious heart shaped cookies.



Since my hubby doesn't like cake (I know, the horror!) I decided to go in a slightly different direction and make a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. This recipe calls for some unusual equipment (a medicine syringe!) but it's actually surprisingly simple to make.

As you can see, this past Valentine's day was my sweetest one yet! What did you bake for your sweetheart on Valentine's day?
