The Valentines suckers and tart ideas I got from Family Fun Magazine. Here is the link:
1 C + 2 T finely ground and sifted whole wheat flour
1 tsp wheat germ (optional)
1⁄2 C shortening (substitute part or all with Butter Flavored Crisco...it is MUCH BETTER!)
1 T sugar (or to taste)
1 T cold water
1/8 tsp salt (or to taste)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift whole wheat flour twice. Cut shortening, salt, sugar and wheat germ into flour. Add cold water and mix with hand. Put ball of dough between two large pieces of saran wrap and roll in a circle until about 1/8-1⁄4 in. thick. Pat dough into pie pan, and prick with fork every inch of sides and bottom. Bake for 10 minutes.
We've done a few more things that I'll post soon. Nothing major, just cute Valentines treats.
