Valentine's Day... in a Cookie Way.

This afternoon-
there was a Valentine's Day party.

And let me tell,
it was a good one.

We snacked,
made Valentines, 
& most importantly-
we made cookies.

Lots & lots of cookies.

My friend, Grace, walked us through 
her grandmother's famous recipe...
or as her family calls her "Aunt Sis."

You may also know these cookies as,

Gourmet Magazine touts it as their best cookie ever-
and it's the cover of their gorgeous cookie book!

I'm a bit skeptical about people's "coveted recipe" for anything,
but this one actually lives up to the hype.

These tiny tarts are the marriage of a cookie & pastry-
with the holy blessing of strawberry jam.

Take a peek at the recipe.

 You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry,
& these gorgeous cookies 
would package up prettily for any of your Valentines!

If Cupid is aiming for me tomorrow,
his target just got a little bigger.
