I don't know what I'm making this year. But in years past, I have made a heart-shaped pizza in a cookie pan. I've also made a giant chocolate chip cookie with the same pan.

Here is a great Valentine dessert!

Heart Shaped Cherry Dessert

1 18 oz pkg refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 16 oz can cherry pie filling
1 8 oz container Cool Whip, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll the cookie dough to 1/4" thick and form it into a heart shape. Place the heart shape on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or till the cookie is lightly brown on the edges. In a large mixing bowl, mix cream cheese with confectioner's sugar. Spread the mixture on cooled cookie dough. Cover with cherry pie filling and whipped cream. Yield: 12 Servings

Heart Shaped Cherry Dessert


YUMMMY! I love this desert. To change it up, I use strawberries I have put up in the freezer instead of the cherries. Both ways is a win win.

This is a great recipe and making it heart shape is EXTRA special.

What about Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries? These are best made a couple weeks ahead of time so they have time to "ripen"!


60 maraschino cherries with stems
3 tbsp butter, softened
3 tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups sifted powdered sugar

1 1/2 lbs. dipping chocolate OR white chocolate,for coating the candy

Drain the cherries very well. Put on paper towels. Combine butter, corn syrup, and the salt. Stir in the sifted powdered sugar and knead till smooth. If the mixture is too soft you can chill it for awhile. Shape 1 tsp of the sugar mixture around each cherry. Put on a wax paper lined baking sheet and chill. In a small heavy saucepan melt the chocolate and stir constantly. Do not add any liquid. Hold the cherries by the stem and one at a time dip into the chocolate. Spoon chocolate over the cherries to coat. Then put the cherries again on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Chill till the chocolate is hard. Store in a covered container in a cool place. These are better if you let them "ripen" a week or two. Makes 60 chocolate covered cherries.

Heart Sandwiches


Cut large hearts and small hearts out of white and dark breads. On some of the large hearts again cut a smaller heart out out of it. Put your favorite fillling (egg salad, ham salad, tuna salad, pimiento cheese spread) on one large heart. Then top it with a different large heart that has had a small heart cut out of it and replace the small cutout heart in the large top open heart with a differnt color bread than the top large heart was. Gives you an "inlaid" cutout look with a different color bread.

Valentines Cake
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 (4 ounce) jar maraschino cherries
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


Drain the cherries reserving juice; chop cherries and reserve.
Prepare cake mix according to box directions, adding water to the reserved cherry juice to equal the amount of liquid needed for cake mix.
Preheat oven to box directions.
Fold the cherries and pecans into the cake mix; stirring by hand. Pour mix into 2 round cake pans and bake in preheated oven.
When cake has completely cooled, frost with whipped topping; serve and keep unused portions in refrigerator.

Here is a great idea for adults; it can either be a "starter" to the meal or used as a dessert.


1 - 11 oz can mandarin oranges
1 tbsp superfine sugar
2 tsp grated orange zest
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks, you need about 3 cups...don't use canned pineapple!
3 cups strawberries, quartered
1 cup blueberries
1 - 750 ml. btl. pink champagne, chilled

Drain the oranges and reserve 1/4 cup of the syrup. In a large bowl combine sugar, orange zest, and the reserved syrup. Add oranges, pineapple, strawberries and blueberrries and toss gently. Right before serving divide the fruit mixture among 12 champagne glasses. Pour the champagne over the fruit.
You can coat the glass rims also which makes a nice presentation: Mix 3 tbsp white decorating sugar with 1 tbsp pink decorating sugar and transfer to a plate. Dip the rim of each glass into water shaking off any excess and then dip into the sugar to coat. Makes 12 servings
