happy love day, sweeties. it's been forevs! sorry. been way busy getting this whole photo biz started .... but today's special ... so i decided to make something extra tasty.
how about cookies with choco-mint for sam love? yum!
for these buttery delights ... you'll need:
1 stick organic butter
1 cup organic sugar or sucanat
mix these together. this may be difficult -- if you live in a cold house -- i put my stick of butter on my table this morning to let it thaw.
then i went and did my laundry.
when i came back it was still hard-as-a-rock ... so i used a potato masher to mix the butter and sugar. that worked great!
with what was left -- i chopped it up into chunks and added it to the butter sugar mixture, along with an organic egg.
then i mixed in 1 1/2 c. of organic flour, a pinch a sea salt, 1 t. of baking powder and a dash of milk.
once it was all mixed, i put in plastic and threw it in the freezer to chill.
while it chilled, i got way productive by putting away the laundry.
about 30 minutes later -- i rolled the dough out -- cut into cute heart shapes -- and baked at 350* for about 15 minutes ... give or take.
