Albuquerque's most romantic restaurants for Valentine's Day

If you are looking for special treats to bring home this Valentine's Day, your local Flying Star Cafes have some unique, indulgent treats for the season.   And these special, fresh baked goods run from $2.09 to $2.99.

Flying Star Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants to get some fantastic desserts, and I'm not the only one who thinks so.  For the last five years Flying Star has been voted "Best Dessert" in the Albuquerque Magazine.

My favorites from their Valentine specials: the Linzer Heart Cookies: crispy, pastry cookies with rasberry jam and a dusting of powdered sugar; and the Marquis Heart Cookie with chocolate cookies, sandwiched around creamy chocolate and mint filling, then dipped in chocolate.  sounds yummy, doesn't it!

Flying Star also has Conversation Cookies (like those cute little heart candies, only these are bigger).  These frosted cookies say things like "Why Not", "Cheeky", or "Kiss Me".  Another seasonal special is the Red Velvet Cupid Cake (cupcake) with strawberry icing and a little chocolate ganache.

Tip: The Marquis Heart Cookies go fast (and why not!), so if you have your heart set on them, call ahead or get there early in the day.

Flying Star has multiple locations in Albuquerque and locations in Bernalillo, Santa Fe, and Corrales.
