It is a preparation very simple! Once the two black and white doughs have been prepared, it will take 10 minutes to make the base and carve the cookies! In this case I made some hearts, but you can choose to make black and white cookies from shape you prefer: stars, flowers, spring and Christmas subjects… to depending on the occasion where you have to prepare them!

Given their appearance, they are ideal together with Valentine's Day biscuits, to be prepared for February 14; but also for Birthdays, Children's parties, Baptisms, Christmas and from packaging and gifting (since they keep for a very long time)!
