Double Decker Valentine Cookies

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2013 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare |

Every year, I make Valentine’s cookies for gifts for my kids’ teachers (except Kaylee — apparently when you’re in high school, it’s not “cool” to give your teachers cookies – heh).  One of the cookies going into the basket this this year, is a a double-decker cookie.

Make Traditional Sugar Cookies.  The only other thing required is some colored sugar sprinkles.

Cut out two sizes of hearts (or whatever your design is).

2 sizes

Place the larger hearts on the pan.

Take one small heart and brush it lightly with water.  Don’t try to make it wet as much as provide something to which the sugar could stick because the dough is dry.

Sprinkle the surface liberally with sugar.  It’s best to do this over a ramikin or something similar so that you can catch the excess sugar.

Dump it.  What remains is what is stuck to the water.

Brush the larger heart lightly with water.  This will help “cement” the two together.

Place the smaller heart on top of the larger heart.

Gently press.  Don’t squish it.

ready to bake

Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes, but watch them after 8.  It just all depends on the thickness of the cookies.

Cool on a cooling rack.
