I baked you something special. Cookie tartlets with little red peek-a-boo heart cut-outs. In honor of the occasion.
Soft sugar cookies sandwiched with tart strawberry jam and dusted with powdered sugar. They melt in your mouth in a blizzard of sweetness, tender cookie and the crisp bite of the jam.
Sugar cookies are associated most often with Christmas but using different shapes and fillings to fit the season easily turns them into an anytime treat.
I’m thinking mid summer to showcase fresh, homemade jam. Paired with a glass of iced tea, lemonade. . .Or maybe you’re like me and drinking hot tea all day long, everyday, even during the summer is perfectly normal. In that case having a sugar cookie that reminds you nostalgically of the holidays to go along with it is a perfectly natural occurrence.
Ever hear of Christmas in July?
I’m counting the days.
