  3. Place dough into a large resealable zipper storage bag and flatten slightly with your hand. Seal bag and refrigerate for two hours.
  4. To make to cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove dough from bag and place on a floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut with a heart cutter. You’ll need to consolidate and re-roll the dough as you go.

  6. Decorate with frosting as seen in picture or as you please. Finally, arrange on a platter or in a basket and deliver to your sweetie! (Makes 12 to 18 cookies, depending on size of heart cutter.)
