Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope you had a nice day with a bit of love included too!
Along with the day-to-day business stuff I made cookies for my valentines.
I love this recipe for two reasons; they taste great and you roll them into a ball then roll the ball in sugar, not the roll out and cut sugar cookie.
From Suzette Krummel Quilt Retreat 1999
1 cup Butter
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
4 cups Flour
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Vanilla
Decorative sugars or nonpareils
Cream butter, oil and both sugars; add eggs & vanilla. Sift dry ingredients, stir in and blend. Chill dough for 1 hour.
Roll a teaspoon of dough into a ball. Roll in decorative sugar.
Bake at 375˚ for 12 minutes. Remove to cooling rack.
Yields approx. 8 dozen cookies.
I then quilted my “Heartfelt Table Runner” a mystery I designed for my guild, but soon to be a new pattern.
I also made Valentines for my sweethearts from here.
I just printed out 4 per page onto cardstock, punched a hole and added ribbon and a message then tied them to my gifts. Isn’t she adorable?
I hope you had a lovely day too!
Until next time,
