TWD - Valentine's Day Share-a-Heart
The second cookie recipe for Dorie's Cookies this month is Valentine's Day Share-a-Heart. The idea is to make two huge chocolate heart shaped cookies and little ones with the scrap dough, and for the two large cookies to be shared.
However, in my universe, people would not dig the concept of sharing a cookie with other people. To avoid this potential awkwardness, I just made a half batch of smaller heart shaped cookies. I ended up with 13 cookies.
Maybe it was the hot weather, but some of my cookies spread so much in the oven that they no longer resembled hearts. The remainder looked a whole lot better once they had been iced and sprinkled with sanding sugar and non pariels.
I think that these cookies ended up looking very cute. I couldn't resist posing my mini kewpie and my brand new Valentine's edition Sonny Angel with these cookies. They are just adawbs and perfect for setting the Valentine's Day mood. I made these cookies and took them to work on Valentine's Day - I think people may have found it a bit weird if I had brought in a batch of heart shaped cookies at any other time.
The cookies themselves were surprisingly delicious - the chocolate flavour comes from cocoa, but the cookies are quite chocolatey and are light and buttery.
