Sounds yummy! I might make these next week for the office, and leave a few at home for the DH.
Thanks for the recipe. How many does this make? Katie
Makes 4 to 6 dozen depending on the size of your cookie cutters. Instead of rerolling the tiny center hearts, I just cooked and frosted them also, so I'll serve a plate of the big cookies with a bunch of the little ones scattered amoung them. Also, I thought that my 2 1/2 year old neice would like the little ones!
It says that one serving is 1470 calories :-) Geez, I'd have to run an awful lot just for one of these! But, with only 4g of fat and 12g of fiber, that sounds pretty good
HI, I didn't put serving size into MC so the numbers are for the whole batch, I guess. ( In the past, I might have been able to eat the whole batch, I've been known to eat half a batch while DH eats the other half, those days are gone, now, though!)
