We are thrilled to share the first of two tutorials from The Decorated Cookie! We adore the drawings she creates to accompany her fabulous tutorials! Kim had the pleasure of meeting Meaghan at the Martha Stewart Blogger's Night Out event last August! Up first.....Chocolate Heart Sandwich Cookies!

From Meaghan......

These chocolate heart sandwich cookies are a super easy and yummy treat to make for Valentine’s Day. Tint the frosting pink, white, red or your sweetie’s favorite color.

 You will need:

*Chocolate Dough  (find a great recipe here)
Buttercream Frosting (recipe here or use store-bought)
2 inch Heart Cookie Cutter
Food Coloring (pink or any desired color) 
Disposable Decorating Bag 
Size 10 Decorating Tip
coupler
rubber band 

*Find the cookie cutter, decorating bag, decorating tip and coupler in the craft store. For food coloring, I prefer Americolor soft gel pastes (Electric Pink) 

 

step one: bake your cookies

Follow the link above to make chocolate cookie dough. Roll out chilled cookie dough ¼-inch thick according to the recipe and cut out an even number of hearts. Bake and let cool completely.

step two: prepare your frosting

Follow the link above for the buttercream frosting recipe, or use your own or store-bought. Tint frosting pink. Prepare a decorating bag with size 10 tip, fill with frosting and close tightly with a rubber band.

 

step three: assemble your sandwiches

Pair up your cookies on the tray so each pair is of similar thickness. Turn over one cookie in each pair, outline the heart and pipe back and forth in a zig zag motion to fill the heart completely. Immediately top with the other cookie, flat side against the frosting.

Final result are these cuties!

Stay tuned for another fabulous tutorial from Meaghan!
