Yummy Cookie Cutting Technique

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I saw these cookies on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine this month. I knew I had to try this technique and guess what...it works like a charm! These cookies were super easy to create and tons of fun. Everyone LOVED them! They are prefect for Valentines Day, anniversaries, birthdays or showers!

Things you will need:
1 inch heart cookie cutter
3 inch circle cookie cutter
Sugar cookie mix
Fudge frosting

(Now the recipe in the magizen is for homemade cookie dough and fudge that you can find on the website but I was in a pinch for time so I just used the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix and fudge frosting)

  1. Make cookie dough according
    to the instructions, refrigerate
    dough for 45 minutes.
  2. Use 3 in. circle cutter, cut
    circles using up all the dough.
  3. Use 1 in. heart cutter and cut
    hearts from the middle of half
    of the 3 in. circles. Bake
  4. Cool cookies. Spread fudge
    frosting on all the whole circle
    cookies and place these fudge
    covered circle cookies
    on top of the heart cut out
  5. Enjoy!

Of course you could make these types of cookies using a peanut butter mix and chocolate frosting--kinda like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Enjoy!
