VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT TAGS
The perfect homemade treat for Valentine’s Day deserves really cute cards and gift tags. Check out a few of my favorites:
Cut Out Chocolate Chip Cookies
These heart shaped cookies start out with a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe like my Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Recipe that you find on the back of any bag of chocolate chip morsels.
My Jumbo Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is another great option for these cute heart shaped chocolate chip cookies.
One of the things I like best about making bar cookies is that they're thicker than a traditional cookie. Almost like a brownie, but filled with the delicious flavor of chocolate chip cookies.
If you haven't tried making these bar cookies, now is the perfect time! And the good news is if you're looking for a semi-homemade version to make, try my Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe that start out with a box of cake mix.
Even the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe would work great

- Baking Soda
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
- Chocolate Chips - I used semi-sweet, but you can use milk chocolate if that's what you enjoy.
Step 1: Prepare the Cookie Dough
In the bowl of KitchenAid mixer add the butter, both sugars and vanilla extract. Beat until creamy and then add the eggs one at a time.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter, sugar and eggs mixture a little at a time.
Finally stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the cookie dough into a 9X13 inch pan that's been lined with Parchment Baking Sheets. This will help "lift" the bar cookies out of the pan after they have baked so it's easier for you to cut the heart shapes.
Step 2: Baking Instructions
Bake the bar cookies in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on top of a baking rack before gently lifting the cookie bar entirely out of the baking dish.
Place on top of a cutting board and start cutting out the heart shapes.
How to use a Cookie Cutter on Chocolate Chip Cookies
The size cookie cutter you use is really up to you! I think it looks really nice to have a variety of sizes but one size is good too.
When placing the cookie cutter on top of the baked bar cookies, try to position the cookie cutter as close together as possible. You can even alternate the cookie cutter up and down so you don't have so much waste...although I like to call that the "cook's treat."
Here are some great cookie cutters to choose from:
