Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1/3 cup crushed clear red hard candy
  8. 1 cup vanilla frosting, optional
  9. 4 drops red food coloring, optional
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Cut out centers with a 1-1/4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter; set aside to reroll. Place cookies 1 in. apart on lightly greased foil-lined baking sheets. Fill centers with crushed candy.
  3. Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes or until candy is melted and edges of cookies begin to brown. Cool completely on baking sheets. Carefully peel cookies off foil. If desired, combine frosting and food coloring; pipe around edges. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
