no not margarine
not "can't believe it 's not butter ".
BECAUSE, I KNOW BETTER.
BUTTER IS BUTTER AND
BUTTER IS BETTER !
Then why is there something wrong with this picture ?
Why did I spend two hours mixing a pound of butter into sugar and flour and rolling the dough and cutting the heart shapes,
only to have them crack and fall apart and then bake up harder than a rock ?
That is the question I have for my Scottish friend Zina.
She gave me the recipe, and I have made them many times.
They always turn out. My family loves them and that is why I am getting them ready for Easter weekend.
But Zina is the expert and I am not. She will know.
Another pound of butter is on the counter, waiting to to soften,
and I am off to Zina's !
