Do you want to get married?
I got married back in 1994. It was hotter than blue blazes that day. It was a sign.
Aw, I can’t really complain, though, because 10 years after our breakup I went back for another round. What the heck???
But sometimes things happen for a reason, and without my messed up marriage and breakups, I wouldn’t have met Sid (love you, hon!), which means I would still be waiting on JT and my heart would be completely shattered. So I really really can’t complain. So I won’t.
That’s not to say that I’m exactly eager to jump back on the marriage wagon (somedays I think I can I think I can then other days I’m scared to death). Does anyone have a paper bag? Hyperventilating over here.
Just remember, you deserve the best! If a relationship isn’t what you were hoping for, do something about it!!! Your desires, hopes and dreams really are important and so are you!
Now, if you are waiting on Mr. Right, or if you think you have met Mr. Right, or if you’re happily married and would do it all again . . . these cookies are the perfect way to entice, propose or surprise. That’s why they’re called I Want to Marry You Cookies. Pretty sure they’ll seal the deal.
This recipe uses melted butter – a first for me! I think the melted butter makes the cookies just a little different; the texture is very soft (a must for me), yet dense. There’s two refrigeration times during the recipe, and I did stick to them. I’m not sure how the cookies turn out without that refrigeration, but I’d bet they get really thin and flat. I added a few sweet extras on the top. Just to make them look extra sweet.
I love cupid corn.
Glamour shot . . .
Maybe we should set a date.
These cookies use melted butter and have two refrigeration periods. Use them to suit your needs during this most romantic holiday . . .entice, propose or surprise! These cookies are completely lovable!

- Warm a cast iron skillet on the stove and toast the pecans, tossing frequently until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan, pour into the mixer bowl and add the sugars.

- Place the cookies on parchment or silicon sheet-lined baking pans, about 6 - 8 to a pan. They spread.
- Bake for about 15 - 18 minutes - I baked mine for 16 minutes.
- Allow to cool on the baking sheet then transfer to cooking rack.
- Get married. Ah!!!
