Heart Shaped Cookie Recipe
We love making this easy valentine cookie recipe each year. My sweet kiddos always join in on the baking make these every February. They are the perfect cookie to give to friends and neighbors, or to eat yourself! The cream cheese gives the cookie a delicious shortbread flavor and the peppermint extract gives the cookie the perfect amount of light flavor. You must try this easy recipe!

Easy Valentine Cookie Recipe
The first step to these delicious shortbread cookies is to mix your flour, sugar, butter, cream cheese, egg and peppermint extract together in a mixer. Beat well until mixed.
Add the flour and beat until mixed.
Divide dough in half. Roll each half of dough in saran wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
After you are done chilling your dough, roll it out onto a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick and cut with heart shaped cookie cutters. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 7 minutes.
After baking let cookies cool completely. While they are cooling make your glaze by melting chocolate chips with butter in a saucepan over low heat.
Dip cooled cookies into chocolate glaze and place on wax paper or tin foil to harden. Once the chocolate has hardened, store cookies in a covered container in the refrigerator.
These are delicious!
