Every year for Valentine’s Day I make special Honey Heart Shaped Cookie Sandwiches for my family and friends.
My grandma used make these wonderful cookies for me and my sister for Christmas and Easter and she made them in different shapes. I started making Honey Heart Shaped Cookies few years ago for Valentine’s day for my children.
My kids love these cookies and they call them LOVE cookies because I make them only once a year.
Last year few of my friends tasted them and they were hooked……this year I had to make a bigger batch of my Honey Heart Shaped Cookie Sandwiches.
This recipe makes about 6 dozen cookies which gives you 3 dozen sandwiches.

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 400F.
STEP 2: In a large bowl combine together flour, sugar, baking soda and cinnamon. Add eggs, butter and honey.
STEP 3: Work it into a dough.
STEP 4: On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough into 1/4″ thickness.Cut out heart shapes with 2-3″ cookie cutter.
STEP 5: Bake for 8 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet. Cool down on for 2 minutes and move onto cooling rack.
STEP 6: When cookies are slightly cool stick them together with filling.
