The Sugar Cube's Cookies Get to the Titillating Heart of Valentine's Day

It's nice to be naughty.

Kir Jensen/The Sugar Cube

For a holiday that's all about coupling, Valentine's Day can be a little prim, proper, and most of all, saccharine. All those tightly packed boxes of perfectly shiny chocolates, those compact buds of roses. C'mon. You're not fooling anybody. Kir Jensen of The Sugar Cube knows what's what, so she made sugar cookies that reflect the true spirit of Valentine's Day.

But if obvious and overt isn't your style, she's got plenty of other treats that only taste sinful, like heart-shaped meringue tarts with passionfruit mousse, heart-shaped red velvet cakelets, and cookies decorated with kisses.
