Cookies Recipes by Sign: The Perfect Valentine’s Day Present
This Valentine’s Day, let the stars be your guide to baking your sweetheart seductively indulgent cookies. The look, feel and sense of the following cookies created from recipes found on BakeSpace.com highlight key features of each sign.
Cherry-Chocolate Chip Cookies (PHOTO ABOVE): The cherry on top of these rich, decadent cookies captures the panache of Aries. Plus, Aries with its connection to Mars, loves red.
Cashew White Chocolate Cookies: Taurus is long on sensual delights. With a mix of crunchy, chewy richness, this cookie is a veritable Taurean heaven.
Chewy Gingersnap Cookies: The zip of ginger in these cookies captures the “zip” associated with gemini. They’re also perfect for a cup of tea for a tete-a-tete chat, one of Gemini’s favorite activities.
My Mother’s Amaretti: Cancer deals with family and heirlooms. As this recipe is handed down from a BakeSpace member’s mother, it captures the Cancerian love of home, family, mom and sweet cookies!
Krazy Kahlua Koffee Kookies: If you want to make a dramatic statement, you’re likely to invoke the royal powers of Leo. In fact, the member who posted this recipe makes it very clear that these cookies are excellent as gifts or for romantic celebrations. Gift-giving and romance are Leo themes indeed.
Simple but Perfect Shortbread: These cookies are definitely harmonious with the ever practical and perfectionist Virgo. It may seem neurotic to non-Virgos to be focused on perfection, but it isn’t from a celestial viewpoint. It’s knowing the truth is in simplicity and working hard to make that happen. Well, it helps when the fruits are likely to be as sweet as these cookies, too!
Café Latte Carmamello Biscotti: Biscottis, for me, always denote class and simple elegance. With this luscious recipe, it seemed to be analogous to the class, sophistication and sociability of Libra.
Killer Dark Chocolate Thins: Scorpios are known to walk on the dark side. This may sound foreboding, if we think in terms of violence. But there’s another meaning here for this recipe and Scorpio. Scorpio always lends an edge to whatever it touches, so we should expect no less from this killer dark chocolate. It’s sweet death for the lips.
Melomakarona (Greek Honey Cookies): Not only do these cookies have an “international” origin to them, which is very Sagittarian, they also pay homage to the sweetness of Jupiter, the planetary ruler of Sagittarius and, incidentally, honey.
Mile-High Chocolate Chip Cookies: This is a great recipe, modified for life in the mountains. Capricorn is all about rising to the top, whether it’s in spiritual life, corporate ambition or both. If only all our mountain rocks were chocolate chip, though!
Surprise Cookies: As an Air sign, Aquarius likes to keep things fresh, with surprises! The gooeyness of these cookies is the surprise, just like the softer side of the intensely private Aquarius, which you only get to see once you know them.
Cookie Crack: Pisceans love anything that can catapult them into the stratosphere of ecstasy. As a strongly emotional sign, however, they have to be careful that a love of ecstasy doesn’t become an addiction. As this recipe is even called “crack,” Pisceans better watch out!
