Heart Sandwich CookiesPosted by in Food
The recipe for this is on the back page of Jan/Feb Everyday Food. I was dying to make them since they looked so cute, and had healthy ingredients like rolled oats and whole wheat flour in them!
I mixed up the dough and refrigerated it. When I went to roll it out, it was kind of a mess. It was very crumbly. I gave up on the rolling pin and just used my hands since it was the only way I could get to stick together somewhat. I ended up with a thicker dough than Martha said – I just could not get it thinner without crumbling.
Even though I mumbled and grumbled under my breath as I was making this one, it did turn out reasonably well. The cookies are crunchy and hearty. They are filled with Nutella, which my kids are simply nuts about. My cookies are a bit bigger than Martha’s suggested size – I didn’t have a 2 inch heart cookie cutter and had to use a bigger one. Even with all of those bumps in the road, these were good, and quite cute too! This is a cute cookie for Valentine’s Day.

Love Nutella. I was introduced to it when we had our German daughter for a year.
My kids grew up on Nutella in France, although we NEVER, NEVER considered it a healthy treat, as it is advertised on American TV.
Can I make a request? No more cookies for a while. I am gaining weight following all your yummy suggestions.
Ha ha! We’ll have to see what the March issues hold! There’s still a chocolate heart-shaped something or other in Feb Living I haven’t made. If I do, it will need to leave the house the same day.
These are adorable and I love Nutella — although I hate their new ads trying to position chocolate spread as healthy!
omgosh! i no jokes, just ate one of these. i made mine with jam. mine was blueberry! i also used a bigger heart cutter then the recipe calls for. d-lish
Even with all the trouble, they do look delectable!
Ah, nutella. I cannot have this modern invention due to my nut allergy, but people tell me that it is amazing.
My kids love it but I find it a little weird.
I tore this recipe out of the magazine and tried making them just like you and had the same problem with crumbly dough. I used the old-fashioned rolled oats as called for, but thought perhaps the big oat pieces were part of the problem. I tried the recipe again but this time put the oats in the food processor first to chop them up into smaller bits (before toasting). It made the dough a lot easier to work with!
I made these last night. Thanks for the tips about the dough. It’s funny that they are marketing Nutella as healthy. When I was making the cookies I told my husband that Nutella had to be healthy b/c it’s European!
That’s a great tip. Thanks for sharing!
