...for inspiring me to fatten up in preparation for Lent. :)
To celebrate (a bit early) the obscure saint whose feast day spreads joy and pain throughout the land, I made "Chocolate Chip-filled Melting Moments". This was the first time I ever made sandwich cookies. It won't be the last. Wow, they're good! The two cookies are very light buttery shortbread, and the filling is a sweet thick frosting with miniature chocolate chips. The recipe's at Bake or Break (if you don't have cake flour just use all-purpose flour and subtract about two tablespoons). My cookies came out bigger than ideal, but all the more reason to try again. :) I made the filling pink for St. Valentine's Day and I'm a bit sorry I didn't add a touch of lemon extract too; that might have brightened it up. Also I didn't have quite enough filling for all the cookies, and I definitely should have doubled the entire thing anyway.
But these are minor quibbles about what was a highly successful recipe. Remember to click for a closer view. :)
