so lucky

My amazing friends and helpers!





I am so lucky, fortunate, blessed...however you want to say it...with amazing friends! Tonight could have been a disaster, but was prevented by good friends. I was frustrated trying to make shortbread tarts look good and of course taste good. First batch of dough was an A+, but received an F for getting out of the pan. Second batch of dough got a C- because I tried to use salted sweet cream butter...not very good for shortbread taste. I didn't even try baking that batch. Third batch received an A for dough and A for getting out of the pan because I used paper cups! easy! Back to the friend part...I was so frustrated I threw a tart on the ground shattering it into flakey crumbs! watch out...baking is serious business. But then Meg went to the store with me, Malia and Meg made the cream cheese filling, while I mixed dough (batch #2), then Brian went with us back to the store for more butter...and everyone stayed up to see the third batch through to completion. Now it's 12am and I have 86 shortbread tart shells sitting up stairs and 4.5 hours of sleep ahead of me. Let's hope those shells don't flake out on me overnight...



The final product...Meg helped put them together at the banquet...mine are the small ones - second row and last row. They were so adorable and delicious. We received so many compliments on the look and taste! I'm thinking of a bakery...called lemon...
