This gluten-free, heart-shaped cookie is special. Special like you want to share it with your sweetheart special. Or, instead of those paper valentines, you can substitute these cookies special (or attach one to your paper valentine). Give one to each of your co-workers, or your mail person and on and on…just SPECIAL!
This all butter cookie has both lemon and orange zest with pure vanilla extract which makes it the perfect sweet treat with a good cup of coffee or tea. Just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth without breaking the calorie bank for the day.
The Harlequin is created after this orange and lemon scented cookie is baked. A tart red currant jelly glaze is painted on one side and a sweet apricot jam on the other. The jelly glazes are then coated with a thin sugar glaze that sets when you put them back in the oven for 10 minutes.
Let these cool and place in a little cellophane bag with a beautiful red ribbon tie and wallah, you’re done.
I hope you have a Special Valentine’s day planned with your special someone!!!
Hugs and Kisses!!!
