My FAVORITE Valentine's Day Cookie

I love baking and this is my FAVORITE cookie recipe ever. I actually got this recipe when I was taking home education in my 9th grade class from my teacher Ms. Garvin. I made these for my first boyfriend as a Valentine gift. He loved them.

This recipe is good for anytime or make them for every holiday. Quick, easy and even fun for kids!

I chose to use hearts because Valentine's Day is right around the corner but you can use whatever decorating tips, sprinkles, cutters you want. I wish I could of found valentines heart sprinkles or something, but this is what was avaliable, you know I like to be more creative. :) The ideas with this recipe are ENDLESS. My family and I like these cookies with or without frosting.

Sour Cream Cut-Out Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt

Oven at 350 degrees and bake for 6 to 8 minutes

I lined my cookie sheets with tin foil, or use non stick pans or parchment paper.


Step1: Soften the butter by placing in the microwave for 30 seconds, then mix in the remaining ingrediants, except for the flour.

Step 2: Mix in 1 cup at a time of the flour, until all 3 1/2 cups are blended in.

Step 3: Flour your prep area and roll out the dough into 1/4 inch.

Step 4: Cut out your shapes and place on a nonstick bake surface.
I made all different sized hearts and decided I wanted to make some of them sandwich cookies, so I sprinkled some of the tops of the cookies before I placed in the oven, I like a variety of cookie looks.

These cookies don't over expand so whatever shape you cut, is what you are going to get and you can place more on your pan. :) Made 4 cookie sheets of cut outs.
Step 5: Bake at 350 for 6 to 8. Give them a nice tan and they are finished. Let cool, and eat! or add frosting and sprinkles. HAVE FUN with it. <3

This frosting is also great for cakes. This is also from my 9th grade class. I still use it to this day and probably will forever!
<<<Use only half of this recipe if you are baking the above cookie recipe!! or you will have enough for another batch.. hahaha or a full sized cake>>>

White Frosting for Decoracting and Icing
1 1/2 Cup Shortening
splash of Water
1 TB of White Vanilla or Almond
1 TB Lemon Juice
2 Egg Whites
2 lbs (1 bag) powdered sugar

Happy Valentine's Day dolls <3

What's for Dinner?? Lindsay's Version of Braided Spaghetti Bread

Hope you're HUNGRY!
I was introduced to a wonderful recipe from my friend Stephanie that I had to try, (
I changed it up using some of my favorite products and a bit more information to help make your bread successful and affordable!
This braided spaghetti bread is mouthwatering and belly filling, sure to please just about anyone, and is easy to make and affordable to boot!
This is great for lunch/dinner, a party, game, whatever, and makes a great leftover!! :)

Grocery List:
1 lb. Bob Evan's Italian Sausage $2.99
Rhode's Bread Dough $2.38 (for 3 loaves, you only need 1 for this recipe)
Spaghetti Noodles $1.30
Ragu Spaghetti Sauce $1.50
Italian Seasoning Mix $0.99
8 oz. Kraft Mozzarella Cheese $2.50 (always use good cheese, it makes a difference!)

Total: $11.66 for a meal that serves 6 to 8
I shopped at Walmart :)

In your kitchen: egg white and a bit of butter

(sit on a plate for a couple hours in the refrigerator)

>>Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown ;)

Prepare your italian sausage, sauce, and spaghetti. (Use about half a box of spaghetti)

Mix your eggwhite and seasoning in a small bowl. I used about half a cap full of seasoning.

Get a very large nonstick pan and lightly butter it.
Take a little bit of your eggwhite mixture and spread over the pan as well.
(The bread expands, so the bigger the pan the better and with some depth to it)

Spread out dough evenly onto your pan. I pressed it out like a pizza with my hands.

Using a knife cut even across slits down the sides of the bread.

Add spaghetti to your sauce until it is more saucey then you would usually eat.
(Remember the sauce will evaporate in the oven, so add more. If you love sauce, save a bit to the side before adding your spaghetti to dip away!)

Place the saucy spaghetti down the center of the bread, adding the diced up mozzarella cheese on top. Then fold the cut pieces over each other. I used about 5 oz. of the 8 oz. block.
Glaze the entire thing with the rest of your eggwhite mixture.
Place in 350 Oven for 30 to 35 minutes.

This is my first try and it was so easy and fullfilling. It was so cheesy and delicious! 
It is a new family favorite. 

Stay Glamorous,
