Happy Valentines Day

Don't Forget The Pups, We Love Them Too!

Nothing says " I Love You" more than a bag of  homemade goodies, made with love of course. Another snowy day in New England, perfect baking weather, not that I consider myself a baker.  I would much rather make a tray of lasagna than a batch of cookies.  I consider myself more of a cookie tester than a baker.  My mom, my two sister's and my daughter... now they're bakers. 
For the cookies I used Jam Fig and Peach Mango for fillings.

 I'm a huge Ina Garten fan, so I used her recipe for Shortbread recipe.  Her recipe is by far the best.

I also used Ina's recipe for  the White Chocolate Bark which is basically melted white chocolate sprinkled with anything you want on it before it sets.

I covered my bark with shelled pistachios and dried cranberries.
The leftover cookie cut outs were dipped in melted Ghiradelli Chocolate and sprinkled with toasted, chopped pecans.  I also stuffed some with melted chocolate.
