Here Comes Miffy~And some soul food...too..



Before we look at treats..
If you have one moment..

Go see..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaWA2GbcnJU




This week two videos  moved me..so much..
I love videos like this..
They appeal to my every sense.
I cannot send Easter treats material wise..but this way..
I can..
Disregard if you have seen or are not inclined to love this type of inspiration..







Nutella filled little vanilla bean paste sugar cookies..
The little cutters were bought on Ebay..a while ago..they are pink and small and are push cutters..
You can simply do a search.. Buy Now  Free Shipping   2x3d Miffy BunnyRabbit..they are under $5.00 for 2..
You can use whichever cut out cookie recipe you have..

I used the one I used for the Hello Kitty cookies..

The recipe is from Sol♥

La Recette~

2 1/4 cups AP flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
12 tbsps unsalted butter softened
1 large egg
1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream the sugar and butter together until fluffy~
Add the egg,lemon zest and vanilla extract and beat until blended~
 In another bowl..combine the remaining dry ings..(flour and salt)~
On low speed gradually add to the butter mixture until combined..~
Press the dough into a flat disk and wrap in cling~
Refrigerate at least 2 hours..
Then~
Roll out to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface.~
Cut out and bake ap 8-12 mins  (I did at 350F)~
For even baking rotate the cookie sheet half time~
My note 
After cutting out..I stuck my cookie sheet in the freezer for a few minutes..I always do now..to keep the shape ..Maybe I did not need to..But I do~.





If you have another moment..

  12. Those videos moved me to tears! Especially the second one - so moving. You never know when a kindness will be re-payed :)

    Do you remember Muffy Vanderbear? Perhaps your girls had them. I still have one. Miffy reminded me of them. What an adorable little cutter! The cookie recipe sounds wonderful too :) I miss Sol recipes :)
