For My Littlest Valentine And His School Friends
I am still awake rolling out the dough, cutting out the hearts, filling them with raspberry jam and dusting them with powdered sugar. I promised Izzy I would bring something tomorrow and a promise is a promise.
These are the plainest of "Linzer" hearts because I prepared them without nuts, using a recipe given to me by an old baker friend, B., who I worked with in a French bakery in Dumont, N.J., way back when. They are a very delicate butter cookie. Back then, as a neophyte baker, I thought these cookies were the cat's pajamas. I still think they are swell. And if I do say so myself, they are an adorable sight to behold.
Wishing a sweet Valentine's Day to all...
