Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you all have a fabulous day celebrating with sweets and chocolate.
This year, Q wanted to make some cookies for his friends. I thought it would be a great time for us to try a new roll out shortbread recipe. I found one that had gotten some great reviews but for some reason it didn’t work for us! I ended up with a really dry and crumbly dough that just wouldn’t come together. I played around, added butter, then more butter…. Finally a splash of cream turned it into a pliable dough. Despite the additions to the recipe, the cookies tasted great – butter and cream makes everything good!
Q had fun rolling out the dough and cutting out the hearts. It was a great Valentine’s activity.
I wanted to decorate the hearts but needed something fast and without sprinkles. This glaze worked perfectly. One dip of the heart in the glaze and they were fully decorated. Half the recipe coated 35 hearts.
