Has everyone been glued to the Olympics these past few days? I think they're the only thing getting me through this terrible Winter. We still have at least 6 weeks of probable snow left and I can't remember ever feeling so stir-crazy for so long. I feel especially bad for my kids being cooped up. I mean in winter at least I can still do my favorite activities. (Baking, reading, and bubble baths.) But bike riding, tree house building, and bug-hunting are kind of out for my kids. Somebody tell me it's going to end! I don't even bother checking the weather anymore. I'm not sure my soul can take any more.
I've been distracting myself from the cold with lots of Valentine's baking this week, and these are one of my favorites. These are yummy little shortbread cookies, but I think they'd be equally delicious if you just added Red Hots to your favorite sugar cookie recipe.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
Also, prayers for an early Spring are much appreciated.
