It is tough coming up with different heart shaped cookie options. While browsing our grocery store recently I saw a tri-colored heart shaped cookie.
I thought I will try and make this at home.
SImply use your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe. I use the Betty-Crocker packaged mix for mine.
Divide the dough into 3 bowls. Color the dough with food coloring using 3 different colors. I kept one plain.
Roll the your chosen inside/middle color into a log.
Roll out the 2nd color into a square the same length as your roll and then roll it around your first color.
Repeat with the 3rd color and seal the ends by pinching the dough.
Make an indentation into the dough along one entire side creating a heart shaped log.
Cut into 1/4 -1/2 inch slices. For best results use a serrated knife.
Lay onto cookie sheet and follow baking directions of the recipe.
Here they are simple but fun.
