Rich butter flavored cookies cut into puzzle shaped hearts using a special puzzle shaped cookie cutter. Frosted with royal icing and buttercream messages.
When cookies are cool, frost with royal icing-meringue powder buttercream or your favorite buttercream frosting recipe.
Add food coloring gel to frosting to make the pink and dark pink coloring.
Tip: The thicker the rolled dough the more time needed to bake. I used 1/4″ thickness and heart shaped puzzle cookie cutter. The size of the cookie cutter will determine the yield amount.
