      I think this must be the most elegant desert I've ever made. Shortcake for me is usually a sponge cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream. However, made with a shortbread type cookie is simply decadent. Because there are only the two of us, I had to alter the assemble a little. I cut the dough out using various sizes of heart cookie cutters. (I had to double the butter as it wasn't holding together as written) Baked and drizzled with chocolate. Then assembled as you see in the photos. I was so pleased with this recipe. So simply to make, and so very impressive. Thank you Joy for such a wonderful idea. When I have company, I'm going to make the larger version. I'm just so tickled with this. :) Note: After weighing the first three ingredients, I measured them for future use. 1-1/2 cups flour, 1/3 cup icing sugar and 1/4 cup butter. I doubled it to 1/2 cup for my use. Made for TOTM Red Tag.
