Though not with my sweetheart this Valentines day, I'm celebrating very seriously with my mom and brother, in Maine. My grandmother's funeral is tomorrow, and so we all came home for the weekend to celebrate her life and to be together. My mom just made a thousand shortbread cookies for the funeral- check them out! She is a professional- sometimes I forget that she owned an all-cookie bakery in Portsmouth, NH before I was born called Harts and Oats. She CLAIMS she didn't name it after Hall and Oates, and that her last name is Hart and her partner's last name was Oates, but I think we all know better. If I can wrestle the recipe out of her later, I will post it. They are amazing cookies, hardly sweet at all.
