Gina K. Designs Sweet Treats Hop!!!!!!!!

Millan.net Millan.net Millan.net

Oh don't you know it's TREAT time!!!! That wonderful time of year when it's cold and snowy outside and it just feels good to bake!!! And eat of course!!!! LOL So glad you could hop along on this Sweet Journey with Gina K. Designs!!!

I made my recipe project a 5x5 page as I'm putting together a little recipe book for a gift. I probably should have decided where to punch the holes for the rings BEFORE I created it.......but oh well........I'll figure it out!!! LOL I made my Old Fashioned Shortbread.......it's just a tad different from traditional Shortbread in that I just have to add a touch of vanilla!! And you really need to make these when you have company because they are just soooo rich you can't eat many!!! I used Melanie's cuuuuute Have A Cookie stamp set and some of my favorite Basic Grey dp. The glass has Crystal Effects all over it but it's hard to catch that in the light. I'm writing out the recipe below in case it's too difficult to read here. Enjoy the Holiday Baking time and get some fabulous new recipes to try from this hop!!!!!

Lee's Old Fashioned Shortbread

1 pound of butter
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
3 c. flour
1/2 c. cornstarch

Cream butter, sugar, vanilla until smooth. Mix together flour and cornstarch and add to creamed mixture. Pat into ungreased 15x10 baking pan. Pierce several times with a fork. Bake at 325* for 40 minutes or until golden brown.




Several members of the Center Stage Spotlight Team have joined together to share a special Christmas Treat Recipe Blog Hop event with everyone tonight! They have whipped up some treats in their kitchens and their stamp rooms over the past few weeks so we could compile our very first Recipe Book for StampTV!

Check out these designer's blogs for the sweet projects they've designed around their treats:


Then, stop by GinaK's blog for a super sweet give-away she has tonight in honor of the hop!

The Recipe Book will be available as a free download PDF on StampTV tonight as well. Look for it on the Freebie Tab link.

~ Have A Creative Day! ~

  11. I'm sure your recipe book will be as appreciated as was the Gina K edition.

    I love shortbread - with a cup of tea and a good book or chic flick - so am looking forward to trying the addition of vanilla. Hope you are feeling better and will be able to eat a couple of cookies.
