Nothing says I love you like a warm from the oven chocolate chip cookie. Except, of course, when it comes in the shape of a heart. These heart shaped chocolate chip cookies are the perfect way to say "I love you" this Valentine's Day or any day of the year.

Servings 2 dozen


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips


  • Cream together the butter and sugars. Add the egg yolk and vanilla.
  • Sift together the flour and salt, and add to the butter and sugar mixture one cup at a time, until completely incorporated. Dough should have a crumbly consistency that you can easily shape into a ball. 
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips. You can use your mixer, but I recommend doing this with your hands, so you don't break up the chips.  Shape dough into a slightly flattened disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least thirty minutes.
  • Roll dough onto lightly floured parchment paper, cut into shapes with a 2-inch heart shaped cutter. Place cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet and pace in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. This will help prevent spreading. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°. Place chilled cookies into preheated oven and bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool 2 - 3 minutes. Carefully, transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
