Red Chip Valentine Cookies/ #Fill The Cookie Jar

What are Red Chip Valentine Cookies? After Christmas I found this bag of mint baking chips at a local store. I picked them up at a good price, but the reason I even looked at them twice was because they were red.  I don't think I have ever seen or used red chips before. So along comes Valentine's Day and what could be more perfect than red chips. But I wanted a white cookie recipe. After looking around, I decided to bake my "go-to" sugar cookie recipe that I usually use for cut out cookies. I made a batch and they were yummy and Valentine festive!
