Here’s a fun, simple and super cute idea for Valentine’s Day; Heart Shaped Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! I love the idea of placing a heart cookie on the rim of a glass of milk. You’ve probably seen this trend all over pinterest and the internet?!
I’ve been wanting to try it for a while now, so I thought Valentine’s Day would be the perfect excuse to try it out. It was actually a little harder than I thought, mind you I do like to make my life difficult by complicating things 😉 I used a recipe with an ingredient that you probably shouldn’t use; Oatmeal!! The large flaked oats made it difficult to make clean cuts with the cookie cutter and the knife to make a slit in the center for the glass rim. I did lose a few cookies in the milk… but who doesn’t love drenched cookies in milk?!! Right, that’s what I thought 😉
Happy Baking, I hope you have fun making these cute heart shaped oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
- ½ cup Stirling Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
- ½ cup brown sugar, packed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1½ cups old-fashioned whole rolled oats
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350˚F
- In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add your dry ingredients to your butter mixture. Beat until incorporated. Add chocolate chips.
- Spread batter
ontoyour prepared baking pan. Using your spatula or floured hands, press the cookie dough into one large flat layer - like one giant cookie.
- Bake in the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes, until the middle of the
cookieis fully baked.
- Place on a cooling rack and let rest for a few minutes. While the cookies are still warm, very carefully not to burn yourself, cut out little
heart shapedcookies. I used a 2 inchheart shaped cookie cutter. If you'd like to make cookies that hang from a glass rim, using a sharp knife cut a thin rectangle out of the center of the heart (again while the cookies are still warm).
