Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

Apparently Valentine's Day is supposed to be about buying expensive things and stressing over extravagant dinners and forced, awkward intercourse. Not for me, thankyouverymuch! I buy my own expensive things (cookbook addiction, anyone?), I stress over extravagant dinners NORMALLY, and I like my intercourse quick and angry. (Feel uncomfortable yet?)

No, for me Valentine's Day is all about baking! Baking what? Like you even need to ask...

COOKIES! More Isa & Terry testers, to be exact:

Hazelnut Fudge Dreamies (Isa/Terry tester)
Hazelnut Fudge Dreamies

I think these are my favorites so far! The filling is DIVINE! The whole thing is like a delicate hazelnutty fudgy puff of yum!

Chocolate marmalade sandwich cookies (Isa/Terry tester)

JP's classmates went nuts over these!

Tahini Lime Cookies 2 (Isa/Terry tester)
Tahini Lime Cookies

Coworkers loved these! Like a grown-up peanut butter cookie.

Linzertorte Thumbprints 2 (Isa/Terry tester)

Brought these in to work today for Valentine's Day! So pretty!

All joking aside, I DO actually have a nice dinner planned for the boy tomorrow, so I'll be sure to post a review. As always, I'm making recipes I've never tried before, so we'll see how that goes.

I cannot WAIT for this book to come out. These cookies all look amazing. Seriously. Drool. Now for the part where Blogger tells me I'm a robot...
