I am still contemplating Valentine's Day. I think I have decided what I shall be making for Simon to take to school. We will just have to see if it turns out well. In the meanwhile, I have my students to cook for. They really had better stop being such high achievers, as they are eating me out of house and home with their reward parties. For this one, I went super easy with Valentine's inspired sandwich cookies.
Strawberry Shortcake Sandwich Cookies
20 Otis Spunkmeyer strawberry shortcake cookies
1 can whipped chocolate frosting
1. Bake the cookies according to package directions, ensuring that they they are crispy - no soft. Allow cookies to cool completely.
2. Liberally slather frosting onto the bottom of 10 cookies. Top each frosted cookie with an unfrosted one, bottom side down, to create 10 sandwiches.
3. Easy! (Yields a whole ton of Weight Watchers points, which is why I made exactly the number needed for the students at the party and not one extra.)
Obviously, you could do this with just about any cookie and any frosting. I love these Otis Spunkmeyer cookies - which contain dried strawberries and white chocolate - and thought that they would be Valentine's appropriate.
Next topic, Happy Pink Saturday! Here is my pink thing for the week. This is a sunbonnet girl from a quilt that my mother made for me when I was a little girl. Isn't she lovely (my mother is quite lovely, too).
Finally, I always leave you with a song on Friday - chosen by the handy dandy DJ on my Zen. After the last couple of weeks, you probably think that I only listen to British folk alternative. Which might make you suprised that tonight's song is "Break Open the City" by tobyMac.
