Cookies are always fun for holidays, especially ones in fun shapes. And I had, like, half the dough left from my winter cookie-making fun, so Valentine’s Day cookies it was. It made up about 4-dozen, though, and since can’t eat that many by himself, most of them came to work. I’m proud of them – they’re cute, though not as cute as I originally planned. Apparently, I am not allowed to melt chocolate. Ever. There were… seven tries, various ways, various types of chocolates. All complete failures. Sad. But the cookies turned out OK anyways. I especially like the sandwich ones. I just ate one – they’re good. Not my best work overall – had trouble with the oven staying the right temperature, so some are darker around the edges and some aren’t as puffy as they should be. But they still all taste good.
Note to and :If my co-workers don’t eat them all today, I’ll freeze them and bring them to SNB next week, OK?
I only made up half a batch and still had tons leftover. And yes, that is powdered sugar all over my table. If my house had an outlet near the sink, I would have mixed the frosting up in the sink (because powdered sugar just flies everywhere when using an electric mixer). But alas, my house was designed… well, not with that in mind. Clearly, whoever placed the outlets wasn’t thinking about cookie making.
