   thickness. Keep remaining dough chilled until ready to use. Cut dough with
   heart-shaped cutter and place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
   Cut a smaller, 1 inch heart from center of half the hearts. Repeat until
   all dough is used. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from
   cookie sheets and cool completely.
       For frosting: Mix together powdered sugar, butter and a few drops food
   coloring and blend well. Add just enough milk to make spreading
   consistency. Spread frosting on whole heart cookies and top with cut-out
   hearts.   THE DESSERT SHOW SHOW #DS3050
