Since Valentines day is coming up, and the Siren Hotel is where we want to be, here’s something we can do. We love making and gifting Valentine’s cookies to our friends and loved ones. Even during COVID.
Every year, we try and bake some cookies to give away to friends and family, and this year was no different. In fact, we tend to make extra shortbread during the holiday season and keep it in the freezer, so that makes it especially easy and excuse free to make!
Our FAVORITE shortbread recipe comes from Martha Stewart. Perfect every, single time. With some other recipes, I’ve found that there is not enough butter and I’ve created sand rather than a buttery ball of dough.
We also experimented with some leftover strawberry frosting from my daughters cake the other day too (strawberry purée, 2 sticks of butter and lots of confectioners sugar and a splash of vanilla). Delish
Aren’t these just darling? We’ve ordered some up to gift the little Valentines in our lives. And since we are gifting, how about receiving these Valentine’s cookies! OMG!!!
If we don’t get a chance to make our favorite valentine’s cookies, we definitely make the day special. We always find something fun like this to gift.
Be sure to check out the shop page too…great finds to be had!
Let’s get ourselves back to the Siren Hotel…doesn’t it just look dreamy? It makes us want to plan a trip to Detroit.
Enjoy some photos of us making, baking and gifting cookies to our friends and family.
My little assistant fully enjoyed the process, and we are off to deliver our gifts.
