1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon peppermint flavoring
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until chilled.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out cookies with 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack; cool completely.
Melt chocolate and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until melted. Dip half of each heart into chocolate. Place onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Store refrigerated.

This is my favorite cookie recipe. I use the same recipe and swap out the cutouts based on the occasion (Christmas, Halloween, V-day, etc.). I use vanilla extract instead of peppermint and voila. They're easy to make. My kids and their classmates love them, and so does my husband.
Used vanilla extract instead of peppermint extract.
Just made these and they are tasteless. I think it needs salt! Very disappointing. Baked beautifully, but should taste as good as it looks.
From French toast to brownies, we discovered the best way to someone’s heart is food made with all kinds of love.
