I am sharing this Valentine’s Day Delight Recipe today as my contribution to the 2020 Good Cookie Food Blogger Valentine's Day Event for Cookies for Kids' Cancer!
I’m so excited to participate in this Valentine’s event (again). This is the fourth year for our event and we want to continue to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.
There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. The National Cancer Institute’s budget for childhood cancer is less than 4%.
It is such a small number and that is why I got involved.

Form into a large ball and wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Form dough into 1-inch balls and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Gently flatten with a fork and bake for 15 minutes or until bottom edges are lightly brown.
Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. If frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add more milk.
