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!

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.
How do you feel about V-day? Do you have any plans, whether it be with friends or significant others?
