I have a confession to make. I love eating whipped butter and sugar. You know the part of a cake recipe where it says “cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy”. Well, after I’ve done that, I usually have a really large taste. It starts off with a finger dipped in, and ends with a teaspoon(s) and the beaters licked clean. I know, it’s so bad for me! But gosh it tastes goooooddd. Even worse, I like it when you add an egg too. That tastes lighter but heavenly. For this reason, I usually add a little extra butter and sugar to the recipe. Don’t judge me. It’s a sickness I tell you.
Oh that felt good to get off my chest.
Onto these cookies. So last year for Valentine’s Day I made cupcakes. Now I’m not usually one to celebrate these things. Working in the field of Marketing and being a little cynical I usually HATE these holidays. Just like Christmas. It’s so commercial. But a while ago someone changed that for me (nawwww). Don’t get me wrong, I still disagree with it. I won’t buy presents or go out of my way to spend money, but it’s nice to do something small. Enter baking.
To be honest, I’ve wanted to make these cookies for a while, so the upcoming Valentine’s Day was merely and excuse. Do you know what would make these cookies even better – sandwiching a buttercream in the centre! Hmmm might do that tonight...
