I Heart You Cookies for my Sweetheart

In keeping with valentines and red, white and pink for our sammie challenge I wanted to make my sweetie something he would remember.

I used my "Butter Cutout Cookies" recipe for my heart shaped cookies, added a raspberry filling, made a sweetheart sammie and glazed.

The raspberry filling took these cookies over the top!

You can use the store bought refrigerator cookies,just roll them out and cut in desired shapes. Or have your bakery make your cut out cookie without the glaze.

2You want it thick like a thick syrup. Add more powdered sugar to thicken, and more milk to thin.
