I’ve been itching to do some baking lately and I do believe heart cookie sandwiches are just the ticket! With Mother’s Day coming up, I thought it would be the perfect time to whip up some tasty treats for my own mama. I know the hubs and my kiddos have some special plans in the works for me, but I always make sure I honor my own mother for everything she’s done for me. I wouldn’t be the mommy I am today without her love and guidance! And what better way to say I love you on Mother’s Day than with heart cookie sandwiches? Actually, you could say I love you with heart shaped cookies to anyone, ANY time of year! But since it’s Mother’s Day this weekend, let’s focus on that for now…I’m a sucker for homemade gifts, especially the edible kind!
Heart Cookie Sandwiches
cup (1) butter, softened to room temperature
cup (1) granulated sugar
tsp.(1) vanilla extract
cup (3) flour
tsp.(3) baking powder
heart cookie cutter
disposable piping bag
round frosting tip
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the softened butter and sugar until creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
Add the vanilla extract and egg, continue to mix.
Sift in the 3 cups of flour and baking powder.
Use your hands to finish mixing as the mixture will be stiff.
Divide the dough into 3-4 smaller batches.
Use a rolling pin to roll the dough onto a lightly floured surface to a 1/4″ thickness.
Use the heart shaped cookie cutters to cut out the heart shaped cookies. Make sure you have an even amount as you’re making sandwiches that will require 2 cookies.
Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2″ a part.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven.
Bake for 7-9 minutes and let cool completely.
Attach the frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with the strawberry (or your flavor choice) frosting.
Gently frost the edges of the bottom of one heart shaped cookie.
Gently place another heart shaped cookie bottom side down on the frosting so it creates a cookie sandwich.
Pour the sprinkles into a small dish and gently press the sides of the cookie sandwich into the sprinkles.
Repeat the process with all the cookies.
More Sweet Treats
There you have, delicious and oh so pretty heart cookie sandwiches that any mama in your life will surely appreciate! I can tell you that although I might be gifting my mom, and probably my sis, with freshly baked heart cookie treats, I’m probably going to have to keep a few for myself. Bwah!
