I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Shortbread Blossoms

Nothing better than tender, buttery shortbread cookies with a chocolatey center!

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup butter, at room temperature
coarse coloured sugar and sprinkles
3-4 dozen Hershey kisses (I used Sugar Cookie kisses here)

Sift the cornstarch, icing sugar and flour together then blend in the butter using a pastry knife. Use your hands to finish off the blending and form a soft dough.

Shape into 1" balls, roll the side in sugar and place on parchment lined baking sheets 2" apart.

Bake at 300°F for 16-18 minutes or just barely golden on the bottom. While the cookies bake unwrap the kisses. Remove from oven and immediately press kisses lightly into the warm cookies. Cool on racks and let the chocolate melt to a puddle or pop in the fridge to set right away.
Makes 3-4 dozen cookies
