Feelin' The Luv

Betty and I had planned to make Valentine cookies together last weekend but those plans went a little sideways for a few reasons so today I decided to make a few on my own.

I have a great recipe for a shortbread sandwich cookie with almond flavouring so I whipped up a batch this morning. There's something about the buttery shortbread, the almond flavouring and the rich raspberry jam that makes them hard to resist.

Prepping them for the oven really reminded me of preparing the pieces for a quilt, and they almost looked like a quilt laid out on the baking sheet.

Sprinkle the tops with a light coat of icing sugar and they look divine.

Time to make a few deliveries. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!..M

p.s. As proof that great minds think alike, Ann in Ottawa sent through a pic of the Valentine cookies that she made - gingerbread hearts with strawberry jam. That's a new taste sensation for me - one that needs to go onto the TO DO list!
