My valentine currently resides in the steamy land of Bahrain. So instead of looking forward to roses and chocolate and a night on the town, I had to settle for baking cookies. Baking cookies and boxing them up for the long trip to my love.
And what better cookie to make than this homemade version of the classic Oreo cookie?!? These really do taste like the real thing. Only better. Because they are freshly made. Not sitting in the bag for months on end. And they do have a bit of butter in them, rather than all that hydrogenated stuff. I couldn't resist adding the pink and red hearts. Just perfect for the occasion.
So, if you haven't purchased a gift or bought any flowers or chocolate, get yourself over to Smitten Kitchen and follow this recipe. Your honey is sure to love it!
