Yesterday, you may have felt like ol’ Duchess here about Monday. But, today is a new day and these cookies will turn that frown upside down.

Clearly, they are going with the theme of Valentine’s day, since it is only 3 days away. Sometimes it’s just nice to treat yourself to delicious, heart-shaped cookies, regardless of what Hallmark holiday is upon us. I have mixed feelings about the holiday, really. When I was a server in a restaurant for four years, I absolutely dreaded Valentine’s Day. It was one of the busiest days of our year, yet one that we would almost never make good money on. My tip to you, is to lay low for the day or do something more creative than going to a busy restaurant, just to get service and food that isn’t that great.

Other than that, I told Corey (ya know, the bearded guy that shows up on my Instagram every couple of weeks) that I just saw it as a nice reminder to spend some good one on one time together. Especially considering how social we both are, it can be hard to fit in time that doesn’t include a few other friends. Due to some work things on both of our ends, we’ll be celebrating today! Which means I now have to think of something to make for dinner. Yikes! 😉

I do love all of the cute “heart”-shaped things, and I say it that way because clearly it looks nothing like an anatomical heart. So, I’ve made these delicious, little morsels into cute heart shapes and made a cranberry jam of sorts for a pop of sultry color. Combine all that with a chocolate drizzle and I think we have a home run here, folks!

Also, I’d like to apologize my Instagram and Facebook followers for teasing them with a preview of this recipe, on Friday. It’s finally here!

And you may have noticed that I got a new toy for my baking! No? Well, I finally got a Silpat and I am totally in love. I can’t wait to use it over and over and over again. It worked wonderfully with these Cranberry Shortbread Cookies.

  1. Oh yes, these cookies will definitely turn any frown upside down. The fact that you used dried cranberries makes it doable year round, great idea.

    • Agreed! Finding cranberries is hard enough when they’re in season, I almost solely have dried cranberries on hand. Now, to find ones that don’t already have sugar in them..

  2. You have seriously outdone yourself with these, Jackie! Wow! And oh my gosh- Duchess is just the cutest. I love her!

    • Thank you, Kristy!! 😀 And Duchess is definitely royalty, her bark is loud and she is very demanding when it comes to attention! ha ha

    • Thank you for the mention, Kammie! That whole list looks incredible! 🙂

  4. heya, dont think these would last long but im aiming to make ’em ahead of time for a company event, how long do these cookies stay crunchy and how should i store them without the chocolate melting?

    • If you need to make them in advance, I would say 2-3 days for the cookies and just keep the cranberry jam separate until the night before you serve them.
