Heart-Shaped Cookies

So, you know how I bought those heart-shaped donut pans? Apparently it's a doughnut pan but my fingers can't type that very well so I'm sticking with donut.

Well, I haven't made any donuts - YET - but I did use them last week!

I made the husband some chocolate chip cookies (his absolute favorite dessert) for our trip to the lake over the weekend. More on that later this week. So, having some dough on hand, I decided to try out my pans.

I greased the pans, spread some dough in and baked for like 8 minutes.

The popped right out and were delicious.

He told me I can't make normal cookies ever again. Apparently there's something to the extra browning/little bit of crispy the outside gets from cooking the pan while the middle stays soft and chewy.

I also realized I need to get a pastry bag. I tried piping the dough into the pans but blew a large hole in my ziploc baggie and dough went everywhere. How do I not own a pastry bag? I don't know.

Anyway, hopefully the next time I post about my pans, I'll have donut success to report.

  1. Great idea! I wonder how brownies would be in those pans? Did you try using a freezer plastic bag? They are heavier and work well for me - plus then I don't have a pastry bag to clean :)

  3. Thanks for the tip, Mixed Molly. Freezer bags are on my shopping list!

    Amanda, I use my sister's recipe. I'll have to ask her if I can share it or if she will. It's my favorite.

  5. Ha! I bought the same pan and I've used it for everything EXCEPT donut making. I made muffins and eggs! Yes, eggs. :)
