This week is the fall equivalent to spring break. There is no school for a week and we have serious friend withdrawals on our hands. The newest object of my daughter's affections is Patrik. He is her "goodest friend who is a boy." They love each other and shared their first kiss last friday as they were leaving preschool. By Tuesday, Julia was freaking out with Patrik withdrawals and wanted to bake himcookies and invite himover to play. It seems oddly timed these infatuations: a boy-friend and true love = terrible.

Shortbread cookies are quite possibly the world's easiest cookie as well as the best. Julia used her Tupperware kid's set which resulted in the tinyest jam cookies ever.

Shortbread Cookies

1 cup Butter
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup Cornstarch
1 cup Flour

Cream butter and p. sugar. Add cornstarch and flour, mix well. drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet, press thumb into center of cookie, and fill with jam, hersey's kisses, etc. Bake at 325 for 10 minutes until bottoms are barely golden. Cool on rack (if patience is your virtue) 10 minutes.

See how easy that was. It may actually take longer/be more painful to read this post than to make these little drops of yummy goodness© .
