  • Three hours or the night before you plan to bake cookies, prepare dough.
  • Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift flour and baking powder together. Gradually stir in flour mixture until dough is very stiff. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375* Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly flo;ured surface. To prevent cookies from becoming tough and brittle try not to incorporate alot of flour. Cut out cookies using a large heart shaped cookie cutter. Transfer cookies to a foil-lined baking sheet. Using a small, heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out and remove heart design from center of each cookie. Fill the cut out sections with crushed candy.
  • Bake 7-8 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned and the candy has melted. Donot overbake. When done, slide foil off baking sheet. Carefully loosen cookies from foil when cooled. If desired, pipe decorative boardders with frostin around edges.

I love to cook, I often try a recipe only a few times then look to try another even if the last one was good. Therefore I have a lot of really good recipes . I love to look at cooking web cites and find new recipes. I like to help people with their cooking problems though now since seeing so many competent cooks on this site.I do not feel I am as capable as before. I feel everyone can learn how to cook and many problems will be lessened if they learn. A major Part of being a good cook is having good recipes. people gain confidence, variety, money saving ideas and health. Knowing or eating only a few dishes would be depressing. It seems at every different place I make different things That people like here it is dessert. in Portland it was muffins. I haven't posted many as I don't want to wade through all the recipes here<img src=""><img src="">
