EKG Heart Cookies

I make Valentine's day an excuse to eat as many chocolates and cookies as I want. But that's about it. No extra love-y dove-y stuff PUH-LEASE. Maybe just a nice dinner, some flowers, a large box of Godiva and being treated like a princess the whole day. That's it. Seriously :P (honestly though, super low key/ nothing)

When I lived in DC, my roommate made these but she burned all the cookies. oops... but the idea was super cute and nerdy! The bf has also just taken his cardio exam so he should know my 'Atrial flutter' cookies are for him *GAG*  haha

This cookie dough requires no refrigerating time like traditional sugar cookies, which I love. No waiting around just to eat cookies. Ain't nobody got time for that! I hope you have fun making these!

EKG Heart Cookies

adapted from 'bakingamoment' blog
makes 1 dozen large cookies

1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cup flour

Royal Icing
1 egg white
splash of lemon juice or vinegar
2-3 cups powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Cream butter, oil, sugar, vanilla and salt in a stand mixed (paddle) just until everything looks mixed together
  3. Mix in the egg until just mixed in too
  4. Add together cornstarch, cocoa powder, flour and mix until a dough forms
  5. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out hearts or any desired shape
  6. Bake on lined baking sheets for 6-10 minutes until the edges look firm. They will still be soft to touch
  7. Decorate when they are completely cool! For the icing, whisk the egg white and lemon juice or vinegar until slightly frothy looking. Mix in the sugar until it is pretty thick. If you let ribbons dribble back onto the mix, the shape should stay there for 3-5 seconds
  8. I filled up a ziplock bag with the mix and cut a tiny hole. The icing makes for a triple batch of these cookies
