An Arizona woman has kept a cookie for 85 years after receiving it for Valentine’s Day in the 1930s.

Penny Rickhoff has kept the heart-shaped dessert in a jewelry box since it was passed down by her mother — who saved it as a memento of her first love.

The family heirloom even bears the name of her mom’s then-boyfriend, Bus, in icing.

Baking was often used as gifts back then as people did not have lots of money.
