Happy Valentine’s to
all my friends!
There is nothing I can give you which you have not,
But there is much that while I cannot give you, you can take:
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it.
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant,
The gloom of the world is but a shadow;
Behind it, yet within reach, is joy.
May you love the one you are with…….
May you be loved for all times……….
May you hold love in your hands…….
May you give that love to someone who needs it……
May you spread your love to the world…….and,
May you be blessed in all ways………
Thank you for supporting me on

Love you all!
These cookies originated in Linz, Austria
2 1/2 cups flour
¾ cup sugar
1 cup butter
zest of 1 lemon
1 whole egg
2 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Brandy
Warm your oven to 375 F……
Mix all ingredients in the Food Processor until a ball forms
Wrap the dough into plastic wrap and….
let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
Dust your board with a little flour and….
roll out the dough to about ¼ inch or thinner
With a cookie cutter cut out the heart shapes…..
Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to
make a window in halve the hearts……..
Bake the cookies on parchment paper at 375 F until barely browned…..
Make sure they are light brown or almost still white….because the cookies will continue browning when you take them out of the oven…..
When cooled use your favorite jam……I like to use plum or raspberry ….
and make sandwiches with the baked cookies…..
Then dust them with confectioner sugar and ….
serve them on a pretty platter……
Tell me….about your favorite
