[donotprint]Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, I wanted to try and find a recipe that would be well-suited for this notoriously chocolate-filled day and Diane Mott Davidson certainly made that possible with these Sweetheart Sandwiches! I’m still reading The Cereal Murders and have several recipes I want to try. One in particular will be a great recipe to share around St. Patrick’s Day, so I may have to wait to share that one.
So, for this week’s Monday’s Mystery Recipe, I’m going to share Sweetheart Sandwiches from the book, The Cereal Murders, by Diane Mott Davidson. These are scrumptious little sandwiches made from a rich, cocoa cookie and filled with a sweet, buttercream frosting.
I took the author’s advice to vary the recipe and added a little peppermint extract and food coloring. The frosting was just a bit sweet for my taste, so I added a bit of salt and the peppermint extract and that did the trick.[/donotprint]
