No chilling time required with this easy recipe. I have been making this for many years. I usually have to double the recipe. You can reroll many times. Decorate with sugar or frosting whichever you prefer.

I LOVE the fact that this dough doesn't need to be chilled!!! This mixed together quickly and using 2 1/2" heart shaped cookie cutters, I made slightly more than 50 cookies. I used Crawfish Pie's cookie frosting on these cookies with some sprinkles and they looked cute. On some of the cookies, I put a small chocolate heart on the cut outs prior to baking and then baked them. After removing them from the oven, I spread the chocolate to cover the cookies and threw some sprinkles on them too. One of the recipients said that the chocolate ones were her favorite. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I'm sure that I'll be making these again!
