Shortbread Heart Cookies!
These cookies are tender, crumbly, and melt in your mouth! They are so delicious and perfect to serve at birthday parties, BBQ's, special occasions, and holidays. There are so many ways to decorate these cookies. I love to use a little melted dark chocolate and shredded coconut. My kids love to put the melted chocolate all over the cookie and top them with mini m&m's! Be sure to serve them with a side of whipped cream and fresh berries!
