Heart Shaped Black and White Cookies
Posted By Kristan On February 10, 2013 @ 2:35 pm In Cookies,Valentines Day | 29 Comments
I have a Seinfeld reference for any situation in life, ever.
I think it’s probably kind of annoying.
My husband is all, “want something to drink” and I’m like, “THESE PRETZELS ARE MAKING ME THIRSTY!!!”.
“You’re SOOOOOOOO good lookin’”.
Importing or exporting anything?
I like to think that I’m not a geek, but once you start reciting lines from old television shows…well.
It is what it is.
Seinfeld is one of many reasons that I had huge dreams of visiting New York one day. Partly because I wanted to see the sights but mainly…
For Black & White Cookies and Babka.
A few years before I finally got to visit New York, I found a Black & White Cookie recipe and made them out of curiosity. They were so good and easy, I kept making them over the years.
But I never made Babka. It’s a bit intimidating. Martha has a recipe I keep meaning to try, but there are like a zillionty steps, plus it involves yeast and who are we kidding, I’m no scientist.
Also, the two times that I’ve been to New York I never even bought a Black & White cookie. Idiot, much?
Anyways — I got to thinking that these cookies would be perfect shaped into hearts for Valentine’s Day. They’re all about harmony and love, right (look to the cookie)?
Plus, the cookie dough is more like a thick batter, which means it’s PERFECT for piping!!
Hearts are really easy to pipe, you basically just pipe two lines that meet at the bottom. You just need a piping bag and a Jumbo Round Piping Tip.
It doesn’t really matter if they’re not perfect, you can pipe the outline of a heart over them later.
These are perfect for your Valentine, don’t you think?

These are perfect for kids and adults…and I think I know a few teachers who would enjoy them too (just a suggestion).
Enjoy and have a happy Monday!!
