Get ready your heart-shape cookie cutter.

Put from ½ tablespoon to 1 tablespoon of batter into your cookie cutter (how much batter you put in depends on the size of your cookies cutter).

Press batter evenly inside cutter to form a heart-shape cookie, it should be about 1/-inch thick. If you prefer thick and cake-like cookie, add more batter into your cutter.

Place cookie on greased cookie sheet about ½-inch apart, and bake for about 12 minute, until top starts to become brown.

Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet on wire rack for about 10 minutes.

Transfer cookies onto wire rack and let cool completely.

Note: The dough will be sticky, when you work with it, you may need to wet your hands with some oil. If it's still too stick after a few cookies, wash your hands, and work with it again.

Valentine's Day is almost here, so I came out this recipe by using my heart-shape cookie cutters. The cookies turned out great. Moist and nutty in the inside, chewy on the outside, absolutely enjoyed eating them :) Oats, whole wheat flour, apple sauce, peanut butter, cranberries, chocolate chips and walnuts made these cookies not only taste delicious, but also full of goodness. Make a bunch of these cookies for your loved one, they won't be disappointed.
