Ingredients

Instructions

  • In the bowl of your stand mixer (or a large mixing bowl), add the softened butter and sugar and beat on medium until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the milk, vanilla, and egg and blend well.
  • Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to blend well.
  • CHILL FOR APPROX. 1 HOUR so it's easier to work with.
  • Once chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • Flour your clean surface (I like to use a large cutting board) and roll out 1/3 of your dough to about 1/8 thick.
  • Flour your cookie cutters and cut out the hearts then place them on the prepared baking sheets, about 1" apart. I made various sizes and cut out the centers of some of the cookies. Repeat until out of dough.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes or until just set.
  • Remove from oven and immediately transfer to a cooling rack to completely cool.
  • Once completely cool, frost and sprinkle.

Notes

This made about 3 dozen cookies for me - it'll depend on which size cookie cutters you use.
