Making Meal Magic is simple. Reynolds products help you to make your meals easier and faster. Learn how to cook your best with Reynolds Kitchens.


  • Reynolds® Parchment Paper
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 drops oil of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup hard cinnamon candies, finely crushed


Step 1

In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Step 2

In a medium bowl beat sugar and shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla, and oil of cinnamon, if desired; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator about 2 hours or until firm.

Step 3

Cut a 10x8-inch heart pattern from paper. Halve dough. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place half of the dough on each cookie sheet; roll into 10x8-inch rectangles. With pattern, cut dough into heart shapes. Reserve scraps. (If dough seems too soft, freeze 30 minutes or until firm.)

Step 4

Use alphabet- and heart-shaped cutters to cut out a message from each cookie. Remove dough from cutters. Spoon candy into cutouts to fill holes to level of the dough.

Step 5

Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until candy is melted and cookies are done. Cool on cookie sheets. Peel parchment paper from cookies. Reroll dough scraps; cut with 3-inch cookie cutters.

Step 6

Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Step 7

Bake in the 375 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Cool on pan. Makes 2 large and 6 small cookies(18 servings).
