These Strawberry Champagne Shortbread Cookies are light and flakey and perfect for a quick Valentine’s Day treat!
I’ve got a thing for shortbread cookies. Okay, let’s face it, I’ve got a serious thing for cookies. Okay, okay, I’m in a serious relationship with desserts of all kinds.
But hey, what can I say, I know how to live life and you ALWAYS eat dessert first! 🙂
This is why I share so many of them on my blog, Living Better Together. I am really excited to be back here at Place of my Taste this month just in time for Valentine’s Day, though!
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorites, maybe it’s because deep down I’m a sap, but it’s really probably because by Valentine’s Day it’s okay to start eating sweets again.
Admit it, you stopped going to the gym weeks ago.
So anyways, Strawberry & Champagne, the combo is a CLASSIC, am I right?
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I knew the flavor combo would make for a killer cookie! I first made shortbread cookies at home for the Downton Abbey premiere last month and they were such a hit, I knew I had to make them again! With just a few ingredient, most of which are already in your pantry, you can whip these tasty little sweets up in no time!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I’ll see you guys back here next month!
