Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Springerle Valentine cookie made by Cynthia Cooks.

This organic Meyer lemon and anise seed cookie is almost too pretty to eat! But you should. Luscious tart lemon  falls deeply in love with vibrantly licorice anise in these elegant and picturesque sweets. Let them melt on your tongue while cupid pierces your heart with a newfound adoration.

Cynthia Cooks, the baker, also makes a sturdy panforte of chocolate and warm spices that will set your heart thumping. These exclusive treats can only be found at Elliot’s Natural Foods in Sacramento–if they can be found at all. Call ahead and cross your fingers.
