My husband brought home a bundle of these extremely beautiful Gerberas for me. So sweet! After I thanked him for the love and got the pretty flowers in water, my mind immediately went to chocolate. And espresso! I know: weird!
(Good weird? I think?)
Wouldn’t this be a delightful Valentine’s Day gift?! The pinkish Gerberas and the sweet, rich, divine cookies? Lovely, I’d say.
Or make them this weekend, skip your morning coffee and have these cookies for breakfast. I just might do that. ;-) Coffee desserts are the best!
P.S. Have you seen the Friday Flowers Gallery?
At least 2 hours ahead of time: Make the cookie dough.
Up to 1 day and at least 20 minutes ahead of time: Bake the cookies.
You can make the dough, shape it, and freeze it! (Keep them in an airtight container or double wrapped in plastic.) Then you’ll have them at the ready to pop in the oven just before guests are arriving. The house will smell great, and everyone will get fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies! The dough can be kept frozen for a few weeks or so — but it’s best to bake it within a week. You can also freeze the baked cookies for a couple of weeks. When I do this, I like to warm them in the oven just before serving.
