If you're like me, you want to do something special to celebrate each and every schmaltzy holiday that comes along. But you don't have time to make a 12-foot-high papier-mache
sculpture of, say, Cupid.
So here you go: a simple idea that will satisfy your craving to make something festive that will take less time than it takes to wash your hair. And seeing as you might not even have time to wash your hair, if you're taking midterms or raising babies or shuttling kids to play practice, this recipe ought to do the trick.
Melt 4 T. butter with one clove crushed garlic over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Using your trusty heart-shaped cookie cutter (you DO have a trusty heart-shaped cookie cutter, yes?) cut out some cute little bread hearts.
Place cute little hearts in garlic butter, and turn to coat both sides. Cute little hearts now go onto mangy old cookie sheet, where they will toast at 375 degrees.
These little beauties cooked for 8 minutes on one side, then got flipped and toasted three minutes more. Next time, I will try maybe 5 and 2 minutes. A little less crispy would be good.
