Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookie
I ate most of this delicious chocolate chip cookie in just two days! Yep. I CAN NOT be trusted with homemade chocolate chip cookies! As a matter of fact, my 6 yr old cried when I told him there was no more left. So, I told him I’d make another batch for Valentine’s Day and gave him an Oreo instead.
In talking to other moms, I found out that I’m not the only mom that hides the good chocolate for herself. Kids don’t seem to care about quality candy. Well, let’s just say the majority of the time. LOL! My son sure knows how good the ice cream is in that premium Merrymead Farm container.
This chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is half of a conventional batch of cookies. But, I suggest doubling the recipe and freezing the other half of the cookie dough so you can just bake it in a pinch. It’s always nice to have chocolate chip cookie dough ready to be baked in your freezer…unless you’re me and can’t be trusted with homemade chocolate chips cookies.
I can’t do that or I’ll eat the whole batch and feel guilty and then I’ll have to eat Avocado & Greens Banana smoothies for a week.
Valentine’s Day dinner certainly changes over the years. It begins as a romantic interlude between sweethearts. Then after a few years of the additional family members (kids,) your Valentine’s Day dinner becomes whatever the kids will eat and maybe a homemade red or pink dessert.
Well, at least our boys like steak and shrimp!

Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookie
- 9" heart-shaped baking pan
- 1 canned red icing use star tip
- 1 tbsp Valentine's Day Sprinkles
- First, in a mixing bowl, add dark brown sugar, white sugar and softened butter.
- Next, add the egg and vanilla.

- Next, press the refrigerated cookie dough into the oil sprayed heart-shaped cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes on 350F.
- At the 25 minute mark, remove cookie from oven and insert a toothpick into the middle of the cookie. If it comes out clean, it's ready to cool. Otherwise, put the cookie back into the oven to bake for 5 more minutes. It will be brown on top. The smaller the baking pan, the longer the cookie will need to bake.
- Using canned red icing with the star tip, start at the perimeter of the cookie and make a red star at 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock, and 9 o'clock, and then fill in midway between so that the stars are uniformly placed.
- Next, sprinkle the red icing stars with Valentine's Day sprinkles.
- Then, drops some Valentine's Day sprinkles on the middle of the cookie.
