Shortbread cookies are one of the easier cookie doughs to make. It’s hard to mess it up! The worse you can do is allow the dough to warm too much and you end up with cookies too soft to hold their shape. Despite that, we’re still sure they will be delicious once baked!

To make these heart-shaped shortbread cookies, you’ll need 2 of the heart-shaped cookie cutters, one big and one small to create the stained glass design that you see. We used strawberry jam but you can switch it up and use blueberry, orange, raspberry, or even mango jam that you made yourself.

We did say previously that cookie cutters can be all you need. That is exactly the case here since marshmallows make fantastic gifts to anyone who has a serious sweet tooth. If you’re making homemade marshmallows, these become vessels for flavors that you won’t find elsewhere! Try adding chopped nuts, shaved chocolate, or a combination of both to the sticky mixture before letting it set. Then use the heart cookie cutters again to make the shapes you need.
