I thought these cookies would be a good valentine cookie for my Valentine. It's like taking Red Velvet Cake and Red Hot cinnamon candy, putting them togeather and making these cookies and not to forget the cream cheese icing that goes on the cake too, add a little valentine sparkle with Red Sugar sprinkled over the icing. This recipe was in our local newspaper . I don't know where the orginal recipe is from.
