I’ve got a fun cut out cookie recipe and heart tree tutorial for you today. Eeeek!

Sorry for the momentary lapse of composure… but I’m really excited about my Valentine Heart Tree craft.

You see, I love doing crafty things, but rarely find time to create anything outside of the kitchen. So this heart tree project brought two passions together, cooking and crafting. It’s a pretty craft you can eat!

I started with my very best cut out cookie recipe, a sturdier version of my favorite sugar cookie recipe that stands up to rolling and cutting.

You don’t want your cut out cookies falling off the heart tree.

It’s best to use small heart shaped cookie cutters that are 1-2 inches wide, so the cookies can easily overlap as they are fastened around the heart tree.

Once I cut the cookies out, I used a straw to cut a hole in the tip of each heart to make them easier to hang.

After baking, I dipped each cookie into a thin strawberry glaze and covered them with Valentine sprinkles.

Stop right there and just think of all the things you could make with these: heart cookie garland, heart cookie necklaces, heart cookie earrings…

Once the cut out cookies are dipped, sprinkled, and dried, it’s time to start making your first heart tree.

Eeeeek! Sorry, again.

I used a styrofoam craft cone as the base of each heart tree. You can use any size of cone, but I found this cut out cookie recipe makes enough heart cookies for 3 8-12 inch cones.

Start at the bottom. Secure the cookies, point up, to the base of the cone by pressing a pin or toothpick through the hole in each heart. The edges should overlap a little for good coverage.

(If you plan to allow little ones to remove the cookies later, use toothpicks.)

Then continue attaching cut out cookies to the cone. Overlap the intersections to create volume and offer the best coverage.

Before you reach the top, insert a heart cookie pop (directions on making those below) into the top of the cone. Then finish covering the cone completely.

Wasn’t that easy? And FUN??
