Sending Love

Shipped in plenty of time to arrive for Valentine's Day, I hoped that my youngest granddaughter would enjoy the cookies I'd made.


Using the cookie press that I've had since my daughter and son were little (see the Orange $9.95 price sticker?), I knocked out the recipe for Orange Cookies, a nicely flavored buttery cookie. About one third of the tinted pink dough was put through the cookie press resulting in flowers, her favorite, dusted with confectioner's sugar; the remaing dough was used to make "bars" which I then filled with Nutella, creating sandwiches. There is something about the hint of orange in the cookie and the hazelnut spread that goes well together...:)

Meanwhile, the Pres went to the Post Office to get a variety of flat rate boxes because sending love matters!  Shortly after he returned home, the package was on it's way, hoping to put a little smile on her face when she discovered the single heart shaped cookie made just for her.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  
May your hearts be filled with warmth and love...:

Sharing with you and those at

  6. I wish you had turned the box around because I think I have the same cookie press. Mine is very, very old. Possibly from the 1970's.
