Weekend Baking: Recipe for Black and White Heart Cookies

Few days back I posted a Basic Vanilla Cookie Dough recipe and made some cut-out star cookies. Remember? and I also promised to share some easy ideas using the dough, which is so versatile to make countless number of variations. Today I am going to write about one such cookie recipe. All you need is a batch of basic cookie dough, some chocolate and butter. Voila! Black and White Heart Cookies are ready. It is as simple as that - a cookie recipe that can be made in a jiffy.

Store these in an air tight container and will stay fresh for at least 2-3 weeks. Given the fact how good these taste, I don't think these will last that long. ;-). 


out of oven, cooled and ready to be dipped in the chocolate..

Roll the cookie dough. Cut. 

Bake for few minutes.

they taste good as-is..

adding a touch of chocolate to them..

{Recipe} Black and White Heart Cookies


1 batch of basic vanilla cookie dough (recipe already posted)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips or pieces
4 tsp of butter (or shortening)


1. Preheat oven to 190 C or 375 F.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a disc of 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies and line them up on a parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate the cookies (before baking) for 15-20 mins until firm.

3. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Keep an eye on the cookies after then 8-minute mark. Cool them on a wire wrack.

4. Meanwhile using a double boiler method, melt chocolate and butter in a heat-proof bowl. Dip one side of each cookie in melted chocolate. Return on to a wire rack and let stand at room temp until chocolate is firm.

Store these in an air tight container and they will stay good atleast for 2 weeks.
