Preheat oven to 350° F.    Sift powdered sugar or flour and roll out first portion of dough onto powdered sugar covered surface to 1/8 inch thick, cut into heart shapes, I dip the cutter into powdered sugar to coat for easy cutting.   Place on cookie sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes, rotate cookie sheet front to back after 5 minutes for even baking.   Cool on wire racks.   Frost with favorite icing if desired.   Decorate any way you like…gather up the kids and let’s have some fun!    Makes 5 dozen
