I want to make heart shaped cookies tomorrow, but I can't find an rolled cookie recipes that excite me. I was thinking a spice cookie, but I'm not picky. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I'm thinking for something a little different... Caraway Cookies with clove and blackpepper and an orange icing.

Just add a tablespoon of coarse cracked pepper, and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves to this Caraway Cookie Recipe-

Caraway Cookies

1 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons buttermilk
teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour -- sifted
1 tablespoon caraway seed
Cream butter and sugar. Add unbeaten eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add buttermilk with soda and flour. Add caraway seeds.

Chill for a few hours. Roll out to -inch thickness and cut with a cookie cutter. Sprinkle with sugar and bake 20 minutes in a preheated 350 oven.

Make a simple icing with powdered sugar and orange juice. Use your choice of food coloring.

... Actually the clove would probably be more effective as an addition to the icing. So, maybe, Caraway and Blackpepper Cookies with Orange and Clove Icing, would be better?
