Hand Cut Heart Cookies

I should have posted this last week but if I make cookies like this ahead of time…I eat them!
I don’t always use a cookie cutter for heart shaped sugar cookies. Only if they are going to a school classroom, do I make sure they are all equal.

I cut them out by hand with a small knife. I make the most of my rolled dough that way and they have much more funky character then a cookie cutter would give me.
Not everybody wants a big one anyway…
Some turn out pretty close in size.
I like the way a mix of sizes and colors look on a plate.
We took plates of cookies to our friends and neighbors.
Before Mazi ate them all!
HERE is the best sugar cookie recipe out there along with a super yummy frosting.

Hope you were LOVED & HUGGED on Valentine’s Day!

You know I have the exact same problem! If I make the treat too soon, then I eat it and of course I need to make it for the holiday as well! So it's like I am eating the treat for like two weeks and while my taste buds enjoy the indulgence, my reflection does not! They do look so adorable.

Yummy! I might have to give these a try. I like your cut out hearts so much better than the cookie cutter variety.~Shanon


I only make Valentine cookies the day before…it's a tradition that you can eat them for breakfast on that day 😉
