How To Make Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl for five minutes or until fluffy. Break the egg in the mixture and add vanilla extract. Mix well.
  2. Put the flour in another dry bowl, add salt and baking soda, toss to combine.
  3. Gradually add the dry mixture to the creamed batter until thoroughly blended. The dough should be crumbly and easy to roll into a ball.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and gently fold them in. You can use a mixer, but I prefer doing it with your hands so that the chips do not break apart. Refrigerate the dough for about 30 min after wrapping it in plastic wrap.
  5. Roll out the dough onto parchment paper that has been lightly floured. Using a 2-inch heart-shaped cutter, cut out shapes. Place cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for ten min. This will prevent the rise.
  6. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake your cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until nicely golden brown.
  7. Take the cookie sheet out of the oven and lay it aside for a few minutes to cool. Transfer carefully to a cooling rack and cool thoroughly before serving or decorating.

For decorating (optional)

Carefully dip each cookie in melted dark/white chocolate or icing glaze, and cover with colorful sprinkles. Be careful, though; you may fall in love!

Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters

A heart shaped cookie cutter is needed for this recipe. Heart shaped cutters are inexpensive and easy to find in most craft stores. Probably the best cutters are plastic ones that are used for crafts and are fairly cheap, but there are some cute metal ones available online or in specialty stores. But if you don’t have one, you could also try cutting them out with a knife. The shape will probably be less accurate, though.

You can use different size heart cookie cutters to get different shapes of heart cookies.

When making these chocolate chip cookies, you do not just need to limit it to heart-shaped cookie cutters. Play around with different cookie cutters to ensure that everyone gets their desired shape!

What Else Can You Add To These Cookies?
