Instructions Checklist

  • Incorporate flour 1/4 cup at a time, mixing with your hands until all flour is used and dough comes together.

  • Divide dough into halves; roll each into an 8-inch cylinder. Wrap each cylinder in waxed paper and freeze until firm, at least 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove dough from freezer and let thaw just until slightly softened.

  • Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices and arrange onto baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until firm along the edges but not yet browned, about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on racks for 5 minutes before moving to a rack to cool completely.

EXCELLENT! These were easy to make and soooo yummy! Mine did get a little flat, but the flavors are spot on. I dipped 1/2 of each cookie in chocolate. I made my dough a few days in advance and just kept it in the freezer until I was ready, which worked out great. I removed the log from the freezer and let it set out while the oven was preheating. By then, it was perfect for cutting. The family is really loving these cookies...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Made these nice little cookies as a Valentine's treat! Instead of forming the dough into a log, I rolled it out and used a cookie cutter which worked just fine. I used my coffee grinder to pulverize the candies. I also love the colour of these cookies! Read More

Sounds great, but I haven't made this yet because I was confused about the directions. Why must the cinnamon candies be heart shaped if I am to grind them up. Will round ones work? Broken hearts seem contrary to the spirit of Valentine's Day. Also, after cooling cookies on a rack for 5 minutes, why must I move them to yet another rack to cool completely? Bouncing from rack to rack also seems contrary to the spirit of the day. Read More
