Valentine Black And White Heart Cookies

I made these heart shaped cookies last night and were ready to eat for the next day.These are of course cookies inspired for valentine days. They were really fun to make and take photographs.

There texture is slightly crunchy, soft, and flaky.There flavor is chocolaty and has a shortbread like taste.These are really easy to make; however they are a little time consuming due to the fact you have to chill the dough and for the chocolate to harden.

Overall, they came out as really beautiful simple cookies that will be gone in no time.When I made these cookies I got really good compliments on how good they are and there going quickly.Hopefully there will be lots for Valentines to celebrate the day.
