Sugar cookies, hazelnut spread, and shaped like a heart? Sign me up! At my previous job we used to sell a hazelnut spread that was to die for. The company is no longer selling stateside but at the time I asked my mom if she could come up with a fun recipe for Valentine’s Day to include the hazelnut spread. Boy, did she DELIVER!

These heart shaped sugar cookies are not only delicious but beautiful to look at. They are also a fun Valentine’s project to do with the family!

Here are a few of our favorite things you will need to make these cookies
