Conversation Heart Cookies: is this not the cutest cookies ever?! And really easy to make if you have the right tools.
Inspiration struck when I saw(and bought)this alphabet cookie stamp set from a local shop. You can get a similar set HERE.
Originally I was thinking of using these stamps to mark all our salt dough creations like THESE, but then I though about making real cookies and stamping it like conversation heart sweets. I LOVE how it turned out, do you?
We(myself and 5.5 yr old daughter) made a small batch of our favourite Cookie Dough (get the printable recipe card at the end of this post) and coloured it pink, yellow and blue.
My 3 yr old son and his cousin helped cut the heart cookies(hence the imperfect heart shapes,lol). It’s a great opportunity to use those fine motor skills with the rolling, pressing, picking it up carefully…. Oh, and not to mention the sensory experience that comes it…
Before it was baked I used my new toys to stamp some lovely words on:
Then it was baked for 15 minutes and came out this pretty, almost too pretty to eat!
Pretty conversation heart cookies, and easy, right?
These would make a special treat in a lunch box and gift for class mates too!
