DIRECTIONS

Prevent your screen from going dark while you cook.

1.Heat oven to 375 degrees. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, flour, and egg until soft dough forms.

2.Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on floured surface. Cut out approximately 100 cookies with 1-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, rerolling dough as necessary. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

3.Bake 6 to 8 minutes, or until edges are set. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

4.Meanwhile, divide frosting among 6 small bowls, about 1/3 cup each. Using food colors, tint frosting in each bowl a different color, leaving 1 bowl white.

5.Working with 1 color at a time, microwave a small bowl of frosting uncovered on High 8 to 10 seconds, or until thin enough to pour.

6.Using 2 forks, dip and roll each cookie in melted frosting to cover completely, letting excess drip off. Place on cooling rack placed over waxed paper to catch drips. Repeat with remaining cookies and colored frosting. Let stand at least 3 hours at room temperature until frosting is set. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

 

TIP: If frosting begins to set, microwave for 5-10 seconds to make the rest of the cookies easier to dip.
