What a fun recipe! The dough comes together quickly in a food processor and rolls very easily between two pieces of parchment paper. This recipe makes two nine inch hearts. You get a few smaller hearts as a bonus from the dough scraps.

I wanted to mail Valentines to my nieces, but was afraid the large hearts might break, even in a cushioned envelope. I decided to cut the prettiest heart in two pieces like a two piece heart charm. I used a very sharp paring knife.

So this

becomes this.

For the smaller hearts, I frosted them with some leftover genache. I frosted the still-warm cookies which meant I didn’t need to heat the genache to make it spreadable. Yum!
