How To Make A Heart Cookie

  • The key is a crispy cookie, but a cookie that does not crumble when being cut with a knife.
  • Test a cookie by cutting the cookie gently. Does the cookie crumble?
  • If no, you are good to proceed.
  • If yes, microwave the cookie(s) in increments of 5 seconds to ever so slightly soften the cookie.
  • I begin with microwaving 10 seconds on high and then start the 5 seconds increments.
  • Test the cookie again by doing a test cut with the knife. If the cookie can be cut without the cookie crumbling you are good to begin the heart shaping.



Use the microwave to soften cookies if the cookies are too crispy to cut without breaking the cookie apart.
