Post by Linda on Sep 22nd, 2002, 6:56pm

1 cup soft butter
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup icing sugar
1/3 cup cocoa

Cream butter. Sift together flour, sugar and cocoa. Gradually blend dry ingredients into batter to a soft dough. If dough is too soft, chill 15 minutes. Roll dough part at a time, on a lightly floured board to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut out hearts with a floured 3 inch heart shaped cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from pan. Pipe decorator frosting on each cookie.

1 egg white
1 1/2 c. icing sugar

Beat egg white until frothy. Gradually beat in icing sugar. Continue to beat until icing forms stiff peaks. Place frosting in a small pastry bag and decorate heart shaped cookies.
TIP: Cut a heart from waxed paper to use as a heart pattern.
