Marbled Cinnamon Hearts

Yield 6 dozen
Here's an art deco cookie as at home for Valentine's Day as it is for Christmas.

How to Make It

  1. Divide both doughs in half. Roll one portion of Chocolate-Cinnamon Dough into a 9" square on a lightly floured surface. Roll one portion of Vanilla Dough into a 9" square, and place on top of chocolate square. Continue rolling and stacking remaining two portions of dough, resulting in a 4-layer stack of alternating dough, pressing layers firmly to adhere.

  2. Tear away a portion of stacked dough, and knead 2 or 3 times. (Too much kneading will prevent marbled look.) Roll dough to 1/8" thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a 3" heart-shaped cookie cutter; place on ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat procedure with remaining dough.

  3. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks, and cool completely.
