Hey Dolls!
Ooo La La..
Aren't these Peppermint Cookie Hearts just the cutest thing? :)
Well here is the recipe on how to make these cute little treats!

Simple pleasures are made easy with on-hand ingredients that bake into a tempting treat.
Prep Time: 1 Hr 10 Min
Total Time: 1 Hr 10 Min

roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
container (1 lb) chocolate creamy ready-to-spread frosting
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
round hard peppermint candies, crushed

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Beat in cocoa with electric mixer until well blended.
On lightly floured surface, roll out half of dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. With 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out heart shapes. On ungreased cookie sheets, place shapes 1/2 inch apart.
