Happy Valentines Day from Tante Marie

Feb 2015: You know, I have only one Recipe I truly love at this time of year!  Here, for you is my video of Valentine’s Shortbread Hearts. 


What “short” means to bakers is that it has extra butter (or other shortening) and extra sugar.  That means that the dough does not have to be handled carefully like regular pastry dough – it can just be pressed onto the pan – thicker is better.  Remember, a few grains of salt brings out the sweetness of cookies and desserts.  Also, shortbread should be a light golden – not too dark.  These shortbreads will keep for a couple of weeks in a cookie tin at room temperature.  Have fun!
