Heart-shaped pie crust cookies

I have a great recipe for you today using Chocolate and pie crust cookies. I have to say that chocolate is one of my guilty pleasures. I love making little treats for the family, but sometimes I want something that isn’t overly sweet.I’ve seen other similar recipes, but this is the one we’ve always used.
We have never been big “go out” people for Valentine’s Day. We really prefer making a nice diner and then a little treat for the family. I wanted to share this recipe for pie crust cookies with you. I love it because it uses ready-made pie crust which has a great flaky texture, chocolate and jam. You can use pre-made sugar cookie dough, and milk chocolate instead of pie crust if you like it a bit sweeter. I used ready-made pie crust from Trader Joe’s.

Roll out your pie crust and use a heart shape cutter for your cookie pieces. You can really make these year round and use any shape cookie cutter. Stars for the Fourth of July!

Place onto a baking sheet according to directions. I baked mine at 400 degrees until they were lightly browned on the edges, about 8-10 minutes.I love to use my baking stone because it bakes everything so evenly.

While that is baking, melt your chocolate.

If you like it sweeter though, I would use milk chocolate. The bittersweet can be kind of hard core. πŸ™‚

melted chocolate

I like to melt mine in the microwave at 30 second intervals.

Once it’s melted pour onto aluminum foil (be careful, it will be hot!) and spread thinly. Put into fridge on a flat surface to harden.

Let the pie crust hearts cool, and try not to nibble on any while you are waiting.

Once the chocolate is set (but not super hard to where it snaps), use the same cookie cutter to cut the chocolate into heart shapes.

Place the chocolate hearts on top of the pie crust hearts, and add a top.

For a variation, and to add more sweetness and a more pie-like flavor, use jam instead of chocolate in the middle.

Each pie crust makes approximately 12 sandwich cookies.

  1. Our family prefers the premium dark chocolate not only because we enjoy the flavor but also because a little nibble or two satisfies our sweet tooth. Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate is one we really like!

  2. My favorite recipe using chocolate would have to be good ol’ fashioned brownies! πŸ™‚

  3. I like white chocolate when it is mixed with other items such as pretzels and popcorn. I think the recipe is called “white trash.”

  4. Wow Jen…. this is not what I expected when I clicked on your old blog “Sanctuary Arts at home” LOL

    Glad to see you’re doing well, since the last time I was blogging.

    The cookies look delicious!

  5. My husband loves milk chocolate every night after dinner. I bake weekly, brownies and Texas sheet cake are a huge hit here!

  6. My favorite recipe with Green & Black would be chocolate mousse. When I am counting calories, however,
    my favorite is just eating a small piece every day. That way I get a treat without feeling deprived.

  7. I don’t have a favorite recipe, but I do have a trick for making sure I don’t eat too much. I sit at the table, (not in front of the TV), put a small portion in a bowl or plate and savor each bite πŸ™‚

  8. I don’t currently have a favorite, but I pinned a recipe for Black Bottom Cherry Cheesecake Bars which I bet would be great with their dark chocolate!

  9. We love using good dark chocolate in our soft no bakes to serve at coffee hr. A little goes a long way. Makes a lot of folks happy.

  10. Chocolate? Pick a favorite recipe? No chance of that. We like making brownies from scratch (or improving on a box if we don’t have the time)…we love making chocolate cakes, but if I were to use Green & Black chocolate bars, I’d make orange-chocolate-chip cookies and dip the cookies in melted Green & Black chocolate. So yummy!

  11. I tell you what… I haven’t made this recipe yet but I plan to… so I officially say THIS is my favorite recipe. Adding the Raspberry? WOW!

  13. I have a recipe for crock pot chocolate clusters mixed with peanuts and raisins- it is always a hit when I take it anywhere!

  14. I make Giant Fatless Whoopie Pies with fresh Cinnamon Vanilla Whipped Cream Filling. Okay, now I’m hungry. πŸ™‚

  15. My favorite chocolate recipe is good old chocolate covered strawberries! I can’t get enough of them!

  16. My favorite chocolate recipe is called Death by Chocolate! It has chocolate, toffee candy whipped cream, etc. YUM

  17. My daughter makes a yummy chocolate souffle. My skills limit me to chocolate dipped fruit.

  18. We are a chocolate loving house so all recipes are winners here, but homemade chocolate ice cream in between chocolate bars in the summer pretty much rocks!

  34. I’ll be honest here; I will eat chocolate hazelnut spread on a spoon and be satisfied for days. I think I’m at that age when eating an entire piece of cake will make me sick. Crazy, huh?
