Chocolate {Valentine} Cutout Cookies

I first saw these cookies on Flickr. Glorious Treats made them…….and they look AMAZING!!

Sunshine and I made them over the weekend…….ours don’t look as perfect and as glorious as the ones we saw on Flickr……..but not bad for our first attempt!


It took a little bit of foot work to track down the recipe, but I found it! Posted here on a cake message board.
