Apparently for the past two hours I had been doing this...
And this... (And I took pictures of it! I never take pictures, but for some reason I did today!-Bizarre how my body took over)
Needless to say, I am going to freeze these cookies and hopefully ship them out with some pink frosting for Valentines Day. And even though the situation is not happy, I did find the silver lining. This cookie recipe is amazing (and if you knew our family friend who passed on, He would absolutely love that I am thinking of him while baking and love the fact even more that I am sharing this cookie recipe with you). So here it is (I am not sure where it came from-I'm sorry)
Uncle Jims Hearts
-7 Cups All Purpose Flour
-2 Cups White Sugar
-2 teaspoons of Salt
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1 1/2-2 cups of Shortening
-3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
-1 Cup Whole Milk
Combine dry ingredients, add shortening to dry ingredients in 3 parts mixing well in between, add in Vanilla, Milk & Eggs and mix well until ball is formed. Roll out on floured surface with floured rolling pin. Cut the cookies thick. Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes (the edges and bottom barely turn brown) at 375degrees F. Frost with your favorite icing and decorate with sprinkles or colored sugars.
Give them to someone you love:)
