- 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
Cream butter and sugar using a stand mixer or hand mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and salt.

Gather dough into a ball and place on a floured board. Roll out dough with a rolling pin to about 1/4-inch thick.
Use a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Gather any scraps and reroll them to get more cookies.
Transfer cookies to baking sheets. Bake until cookies begin to get golden around edges, about 15 - 20 minutes.
Cool cookies on a wire rack.
Chop chocolate into medium pieces and place in a small bowl. Melt chocolate using a microwave (or on the stove). Do not overheat.
Dip cookies into chocolate or use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over cookies.
Transfer decorated cookies to parchment lined baking sheets. Place cookies in freezer until chocolate sets.
Enjoy cookies immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!
