I spent the day planning a special dinner. Unfortunately, the power went out around 5pm, so instead of sitting down to an elegant meal, I made sandwiches. Then Mark and I spent the evening playing Scrabble by candlelight. This morning I baked the dessert I had planned for our Valentine's Day meal. Mark asked me to make him heart shaped chocolate chip cookies because those are his favorite.
I used a heart shaped cookie cutter for a mold.
Here's the recipe: 1 c. butter, 1/2 c. white sugar, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1 egg yolk, 1 1/2 c. flour, 1/2 tsp. salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Melt 4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate. Spread on top and garnish with sliced almonds.
