I was excited when I saw
what looked like and easy recipe
in the latest martha stewart magazine..
a perfect cookie recipe for Valentine's cookies..
(thank god I tried it before the day of!)
for some reason the cookies
came out extremely flat..
part because my oven just
started running extremely hot lately..
(please don't break oven!!)
but apparently other people were
having problems with the recipe too,
so I don't feel so bad..
I went to my old faithful cookie recipe
from this fun little baking book
that has a deceiving cover..
looks like something you would never use..
but I love it!
and I just added the cherries and chocolate
A perfect Valentine's cookie..
except for the part where I bought
cherry flavored cranberries accidentally instead of cherries..
(that's what shopping while sick and with a toddler will do to you!)
