    Such an amazing line up!! Good thing I know you for reals – ’cause you would intimidate the heck out of me. You are the ULTIMATE baker. I think you might end up on TV one day 😉

    I know the sugar cookie post is from a while ago, but it looks like the perfect cookie recipe…
    I lost the one I used to use for cut out cookies when I moved from Ireland and I just can’t remember the quantities.
    I have a couple questions… Firstly, if I don’t have the almond extract will it be gross without? Should I add a little extra vanilla?
    Also, does the dough freeze well? I’m thinking about making it in advance but I have made some doughs before that just don’t like to be frozen.
    I’m thinking about making hubbie some cookies for valentines day – I know he’d appreciate it since I haven’t done much baking since I’ve been pregnant!

    Hi Amanda, I made the Valentine’s Cake (over a 4 day period!) ~ a few flops, but finally got it all glued together. Not much of a baker, but this was a great project. My Mom in South Africa quilts, ~ perhaps I was inspired in a similar way here 🙂 … I am on a strict diet (Bootcamp), so decided to give this cake to 2 of my dear friends who became engaged over Chirstmas. My musician friend and my hairdresser ~ they LOVE the cake! I have not yet seen the inside heart, but they promised they would send me a pic. I will send you a photo show of the making of the cake, put to my musicians own composition “Love is Free, This Christmas”. I will email you a copy of the photo show.
    Thanks for the great recipe ~ it is currently my FaceBook page (the cake).
