A Sweet Craft for Valentine’s Day: Stained Glass Heart Cookies

Here’s an easy, and very tasty, way to transform store bought cookie dough and colorful candies into sweet treats to give or keep for Valentine’s Day.


  • Sugar cookie dough
  • Hard candy, crushed into small pieces
  • Cookie cutters
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie sheets



To start – purchase (or make, if you’re feeling your inner Julia Child) plain sugar cookie dough. If it’s not in sheets already, roll out to ¼ inch.

Use a large heart shape cookie cutter to create a base shape. Then using a smaller heart cutter, or plain circle shape, make a hole in the center of the cookie.

Put the cut-out hearts on a parchment lined cookie sheet (the parchment is important here so the hearts don’t stick to the pan).

Take hard candy (we used leftover candy canes, but the sky’s the limit colorwise, think LifeSavers or Jolly Ranchers), unwrap and crush with a rolling pin between two layers of parchment or in a plastic bag.

Now fill the hole in the center of heart with the crushed candy.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until candy is melted and dough is golden brown.

Voila, stained glass hearts!

¡Te Queremos! Happy Valentine's Day from Little Pim

Whether you usually mark Valentine's Day by cutting out homemade valentines with your kids, presenting a heart-shaped box of candy to your beloved or cooking a special family meal, why not use the occasion this year to express your love in a whole new way? Say it in another language and spark a love of languages and learning in your kids.

Here's how to say "I love you" in seven languages:

German:Ich liebe dich

Russian (transliterated):Yah tebyah loobloo

Spanish:Te quiero or (romantically) Te amo

French:Je t'aime

Hebrew (transliterated):Ani ohev otach (to a woman or girl) or Ani ohevet otchah (to a man or boy)

Arabic (transliterated):Ana behibek (to a girl or woman) or Ana behibak (to a boy or man)

Italian:Ti voglio bene or (romantically) Ti amo

What better way to say "I love you"? Of course, a shiny red box of bonbons is nice too!
