Review This Recipe
These are wonderful. I made them for a cookie exchange and they were a real success. They stay soft and chewy which seemed to be a big hit with my friends. It take a little while for the hearts to cool and set-up if you are planning on stacking them on a tray or plate, so allow time. I put mine in the fridge for a couple of minutes to speed up the process.
