Review: Valentine's Day Smiley Cookies

As you all know, yesterday was Tuesday. In general, I'm not a fan of Tuesdays. They just seem to take too long to finish, and they're way too far from the weekend! But this week my Tuesday had a fun little surprise in it- a box of Valentine's Day Cookies showed up at my front door!

My box of cookies came from SmileyCookie, a site that sells all sorts of cute cookie gifts. The site has a number of different choices- simple smiley faces, heart smiley faces, flower smiley faces, and even pirate smiley faces!  I received the heart-shaped cookies pictured above for my review.

The cookies arrived at my door in a nice box, decorated with pictures of smiley face cookies. That is a fun touch- cheers you up before you even get to the cookies inside the box.  The cookies themselves were safely packaged in a plastic container, so they stayed intact during shipping. No broken hearts here! I was surprised by how big the cookies were- I didn't expect quite such large cookies, so that was a nice surprise. 

Safely packaged

Looking delicious!

As for the taste- yum!  These are my favorite type of cookies- a just-soft-enough sugar cookie with a simple icing.  My kids agreed with me about the deliciousness of the cookies and spent most of the afternoon begging for more. 
Little boy, big cookie!
If you're in the market for a fun Valentine's Day (or any day!) gift for someone- I'd highly recommend these cookies. You can send just the cookies or get cookie gift baskets for an extra-special touch. SmileyCookie also sells coffee, mugs and chocolate.  You can shop the site by occasion, price or category. And you can even custom design your cookies- picking just the right shape, base icing color and smiley face color. 

Now if you'll excuse me- all this writing about cookies has made me hungry. I need to go eat another one!
