Pink Heart Sandwich Cookies

Recipe photo courtesy of Jonathan Lovekin

The pink hearts are made from a sugar-cookie dough; the chocolate hearts are a little denser. What holds these charming sandwich cookies together is a filling that will remind you of an Oreo. It's creamy, but granulated sugar gives it a tender crunch. (This is the corrected version of this recipe.)

    This recipe was a disaster for me. I followed the directions carefully but the chocolate dough was so dry it was almost impossible to roll. I was desperate enough to put it in the microwave for a few seconds and that softened the butter enough to make it roll. But it still tasted bitter. The sugar cookies came out kind of heavy and chewy. The filling was fine, very much like Oreo filling. But overall this was a lot of work for something I was embarrassed to take to the bake sale at the office.

    These turned out terrific. I was sure to do all the cooling steps recommended and they were exactly like the picture. I had every neighborhood kid on the street coming to see what was in my cookie jar!

    Follow this recipe if all you want to make is a bowl of crumbs. Ugh.

    Yes, the cookie dough was very crumbly and that's when I came to look at the reviews. After seeing the one review posted, I threw the dough away. I agree, complete waste of time AND ingredients. Beautiful cookies on the cover and since this was your cover photo, can anyone on the Martha Stewart end give some tips on making the cookies?

    The cookie dough was very dry and crumbly, and the baked cookie just tasted like flour. I wonder if there is an error in the amount of butter in the recipe. I was very disappointed and wouldn't bother to make this cookie again. Complete waste of time.
