I happened to have some sugar cookie dough sitting in my fridge today that I needed to either use, or throw away. I was really not in the mood to decorate cookies, or really put much effort in them at all. I thought my kids might want to bake them after school though. So, I decided to try making my own version of the ones you buy at the store.
I started by rolling out the dough, and cutting it into circles. Then I used a small heart cutter in the center of the cookie.
I saved 1/3 of the dough, and colored it pink. Then I used the same heart cutter to cut out little pink hearts.
I placed the pink heart into the center of the circle and put in on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. I stuck the cookies in the freezer for about 20 minutes.
