How glorious was the weather yesterday?! I went for a run which was my first good run in forever, and I almost cried because the weather felt so nice. I spent the whole run thinking and looking back, it was a rough winter in many ways! I am ready to look ahead!

We didn’t do much for Easter, but I did bake a special dessert, butter cookies from a recipe from the Kerrygold USA website.

Kerrygold butter

The recipe was, of course, rich in Kerrygold butter. I was out of salted, so I used a mix of salted and unsalted.

The recipe called for mixing the butter and sugar with a mixer. Since I don’t have one, we used every other tool in the kitchen to mash the butter and sugar together until fluffy. We are fancy bakers in my house, let me tell you!

Eventually, the dough came together into a nice, non-sticky ball which I refrigerated overnight to allow it to firm up enough to cut.

Once ready to bake, I rolled the dough into a somewhat even log and cut the cookies out.

18 minutes later in a 325 oven, and my not-so-round cookies were done. We’ll call them Easter egg shaped, shall we?

To make the sandwiches, I softened some raspberry sorbet from Trader Joe’s and stuffed it in between two buttery cookies.

Isn’t it pretty? The crunchy, buttery cookies were a tiny bit too sweet for me, making just a small sandwich the perfect dessert. I love cookie sandwiches for the contrast between cool and warm, crunchy and creamy, and I loved that the color of the sorbet was so spring-like!

I am thinking that these will be a great dessert for Mother’s Day, which is just a couple of weeks away! Kerrygold has all sorts of great recipes on their website, and I am teaming up with Kerrygold to help you make one or more of their recipes for Mother’s Day or another spring occasion!

They are generously giving one reader a hamper containing a month of butter and cheese. I have made several Kerrygold converts, including my mom and sister, over the past few months, and once you try their butter and cheese, I think you will be in love too!

    Those cookies look insanely buttery. And I love the pop of color from the sorbet. I would totally make sticky date pudding. It’s so delicious. I am drooling over the thought of a toffee sauce made with kerrygold


  3. Samantha’s avatar

    Wow, they have a lot of delicious looking recipes (the Pear, Cumin Seed, and Aged Cheddar Grilled Sandwich? Yes please!). I think the Bubbly Cheddar Tomatoes look amazing (and easy!), but I’d also love to try the Colcannon recipe!

    Mmm. What’s better than butter cookies? They look so yummy!

    I’ve been way into tons of fruit lately so I’d have to pick the raspberry tart that’s on their site. It doesn’t have to look perfect to be good!

    The slice and bake butter cookies look good right now. You need good butter for those, or you’re doomed.

    Love your idea of ice cream sandwiches and think it would work well for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party. I think I’ll whip up a batch of butter cookies and put out different varieties of ice cream so that my kids can customize their own sandwiches.
