Heart shaped cookies to show them your love is from the heart - and for the heart! These Cherry Granola Heart Cookies are filled with healthful dried fruit and granola.
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Lightly grease two cookie sheets. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup dried cherries or golden raisins with enough hot tap water to cover. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together:
- 3-cups granola
- 1/2-cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2-teaspoon baking powder
Stir in 4-tablespoons butter or margarine, melted, 1 large egg, lightly beaten and 2-tablespoons honey until mixture is evenly moistened. Drain cherries or raisins; add to flour mixture, stirring until well combined.
Scrape batter onto a clean surface; pat into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle. Using a 1-1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies; place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Reroll and cut scraps.
Bake cookies 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely.
Recipe makes 1-1/2 dozen.
