Everyone knows you and your groom are cut out for each other; these monogrammed shortbread sandwich cookies just drive home the point. Let store-bought cookie cutters do the heavy lifting; we started with a round ruffly one to get the shape, then mini alphabet cutters for the monogram. Between the layers? Sweet-tart rhubarb jam -- another perfect match. We used mini alphabet cutters by R&M from Amazon.com and a heart aspic cutter by Ateco.
Proust waxed poetic about madeleines for a reason: They're buttery and delicious! To make the shell-shaped cookies even more mouthwatering, spread a layer of fruity frozen yogurt or lemon curd between two store-bought madeleines, and serve immediately so they don't melt.
Perfect to serve at a wedding shower or a wedding reception, these shortbread cookies can be made in myriad different shapes to fit the theme of your day. The number of cookies will vary with the size of cookie cutters used. Use any small spoon or fork to make the decorative impressions on these cookies.
