Valentines Day treats

What’s more fun than a snow day? Being snowed in with my hubby and son and baking treats as a family!
We created a venison steak sandwich and made Against All Grains delicious sugar cookies. Since Jackson is only 6 months old, I had to modify a few things for him so that he could enjoy the treats with us. I made the sugar cookies following the recipe but I made my own icing.
If you don’t follow Against All Grain on Facebook, go do that now! They posted their sugar cookie recipe for Valentines day.
My icing for our cookies was a strawberry cookie frosting.

Strawberry Cookie Frosting:
6 whole Strawberries
1 Cup Full Fat Coconut Cream (put a can of coconut milk in the fridge over night and use the think cream on the top.)
1/4 Cup Almond flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
1tsp. Dark chocolate cocoa Powder

Blend well and place in fridge until you are ready to use. Make sure cookies cool completely before decorating. I used a pipe bag so that Jackson didn’t get covered and become a sticky mess- it worked for the most part but this rookie momma should have known better- kids always find a way to get messy!! It was a snow day adventure.
We will also be making chocolate covered strawberries and Paleo candies from my blog.

Happy Valentine’s Day from my loved ones to yours!
