Dorie suggests making two large hearts from this recipe but since I was not having a party and feared my son would eat the whole thing, I made several smaller hearts. I used a three to three and a half inch cookie cutter and got a total of 20 hearts. I really liked the instructions of dividing the dough in half and rolling out two circles nine inches in diameter. I am not good at judging thickness of my cookie dough so having a diameter worked really well for me. I made the cookie dough a day in advance, stored in the refrigerator over night and then baked the next day.
The results were a tasty chocolate cookie that my husband said was shortbread-like. I decorated a few with some icing I had on hand already and then I added some sanding sugar to a few before I baked. They all turned out well and got the thumbs up.
