Baking Heart Cookies for Valentines {OXO Good Grips Review}

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

I like to bake with the children as much as possible and through the year we bake seasonal treats just as an excuse really! When OXO Good Grips asked us to get our bake on using their products and create some Valentines inspired treats I couldn’t wait to get started!

We were sent the OXO Good Grips Cookie Press and got to work making Valentines Heart Cookies. You can use pretty much any cookie dough recipe for this press but it does have to be the perfect consistency for the press to work. In the end I used the press to make heart shapes and cut them off myself with a spatula.

Once baked, we used the OXO Dusting Wand which worked perfectly to add a light dusting of icing sugar to the cookies afterwards. This would also work well for dusting cocoa powder or flour, is easy to fill and simple to use – a great kitchen gadget!

    Oh I love the dusting wand – it looks fantastic, and no danger of it being coopted as a food strainer – which might just be the fate of my metal sieve!!
