Take a Little Pizza My Heart ... Valentine Cookies

take a little pizza my heart, decorated cookies for valentine's day!
I love these cookies on so many levels. 

A. I love pizza.
B. I love love.
C. I love hearts.
D. I love a cheesy valentine pun.
E. I love cookies. (That goes without saying.)

The inspiration for these cookies is threefold. I found a cute valentine at Target (birthplace of cookie ideas) that said, "You have a pizza my heart." After seeing that card, Janis Joplin was on repeat in my head...and she hasn't left..."Take another little piece of (pizza) my heart now, baby..." And third, I remembered Callye's brilliant pizza cookie tutorial.

It was the trifecta of cookie inspiration.

To make these Pizza My Heart cookies, you'll need:
Now, for the bulk of this tutorial, I want to refer you to Callye's blog, Sweet Sugarbelle. I followed her tutorial pretty much to the letter. I love how Callye's cookie brain works.

I did hand-cut the cookies into triangles, that's what the bench scraper is for. You could also use a knife or a pizza cutter.

For the pepperoni, I used heart sprinkles. I added these with the first layer of "cheese."

I just love the icing here and how it looks like melted cheese. These cookies are honestly so easy to make...there's really no messing them up. Promise.

As for the letters, they're just plain red. Nothing fancy at all, but I LOVE them with the pizza slices. I sent these to work with Mr. E...in a pizza box.

    1. Hey Amy! You know, I can't remember where I got them. I think they might be from one of those large sets of plastic cutters with letters, numbers, and holidays. They're about 2" tall.
