Shortbread Hearts

This is an excellent and versatile recipe. I make cookies each week for a Sunday School class among many other occasions and everyone just loved these. I did not have Nestle's hearts but I found that crunch and plain chocolate pieces were just as good. I also experimented with other flavors of jam and they were equally accepted - in fact they just disappeared. I will use this recipe a lot during the holidays. I loved the fact that I could leave the dough in the fridge for an hour while I made other cookies - I seemed to get more accomplished that way. Thank you - I love your products.

GREAT TREAT!

When I made these wonderful cookies, I couldn't get enought of them. I actually made them throughout the holiday season. I decorated them with red, green, and white icing. They are fun and easy to make. My co-workers and family members loved them. I think these are not only great for Valentines but for any special occasion. They are great!

Perfect!

This is an easy and delicious recipe for Valentines Day. I found them easier to make than rolling out and decorating sugar cookies.

Short breads so good to eat

I put the short bread hearts on my menu for valentines day. I had some extra to bring in to work they went so fast and so yummy to eat. My friends and clients just loved them. I would make these again.

Great cookie

I used the basic shortbread recipe here to make heart shaped cutouts and it worked great.
