I only used two drops of Coloring Gel by Cake Craft for the little center hearts. The color I used was Funky Fuchsia.

These double heart sugar cookies are a symbol that the love of my life, and I are together. Of course, I am not sure if he sees it that way lol. He is not very mushy when it comes to Valentine’s Day, but he has always been there when I needed him.

For the double hearts, I knew I wanted to cut out the middle and insert a different colored heart for the center. I found Cake Craft Coloring Gel with 12 different colors that I have been itching to try. The box has two different colors for pink, Rosy Pink and Funky Fuchsia. Funky Fuchsia has a little red in it, so that is what I used for the sugar cookies small heart. Two drops were just enough to color the small ball that was to be the pink center heart.

Tools I Used:

The heart-shaped cookie cutters called de Buyer Heart Cookie Cutter Set are sold at Amazon but are currently sold out. I am sharing the link to Williams and Sonoma’s site where you can purchase them there. I do not receive a commission from that site, but they are so good that I just had to share.

Steps

1
Done

Weigh or measure the sugar and set aside. In another bowl, weigh or measure the flour, baking powder, and salt running a whisk through to blend. In a stand or handheld mixer, blend the butter and sugar till light and fluffy about 2 - 4 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and egg blend thoroughly. Turn the mixer down to low and add the flour mixture and mix till incorporated. You want the dough like playdough that you can form a ball in your hand.

2
Done

You need two different sizes of heart cookie cutters. I choose a medium and small heart cookie cutters for these cookies, but you can do different sizes if you like. I took a ball of dough (bigger than a golf ball) and put it in a small bowl. Add two drops of any pink color gel and mix with your hands till incorporated. There should be enough dough if you are using a small heart cookie cutter. You will have to adjust the dough ratio if you decide to make the center heart larger.

3
Done

Roll out noncolored dough and cut out as many as you can of the bigger hearts. Then take the small heart and cut that out of the middle of the bigger heart, so you have a heart-shaped hole. Next, take the little heart and cut it out of the pink dough and place that into the empty small heart-shaped hole of the bigger heart. When they bake, they blend and look like one cookie.

4
Done

Add double heart cookies to parchment-lined cookie pan and bake for 6-8 minutes at 350°. You don't want them to get brown, or they will be dry. After pulling the cookie pan out of the oven, I leave them on the pan for a minute before moving them to a cooling rack.
