RECIPE | Heart Shaped Candy Cookies

Treat your sweetheart to something sweet for Valentines day with the help of this candy cookie recipe!

I am a big fan of cookies and am always excited when I discover new ways of making them, because it’s the perfect excuse to having to ‘taste’ them all when looking for the perfect recipe. 
I never knew this, but apparently when you put crushed candy in the oven, it melts and has a pretty glass stained effect. And what a better way to use this effect, than for Valentines day! Because who wouldn’t want to get a heart shaped candy cookie on a stick!

here’s how:

– 250 g Flower
– 100 g White Caster Sugar
– 160 g Butter
– 1 Egg
– 1 Pinch of Salt
– Crushed candy
– Preheat the oven to 160 Degrees
– Mix the flower, sugar and salt in a bowl. 
– Add the butter and egg. knead with your hands until you can form it into a big ball.
– Roll out the cookie dough on a floured counter, with a thickness of about 5 mm. 

– Cut the dough into heart shapes with a cookie cutter. 

Place two shapes on top of each other with something like a popsicle stick in between. Use a smaller cookie cutter to cut the tiny hearts out.

– Place the cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
– Crush the candy and fill the tiny hearts with the candy.
– Place the cookies in the oven for 20 minutes.
– Let them cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.
When I was finishing eating the last cookie, I also noticed this post on abeautifulmess. Those girls are just genius, because instead of crushed candy they used gummy bears. Also a great idea as a Valentine treat!
