Have all ingredients at room temperature. Blend thoroughly in food
processor until mixture forms large clumps. Shape into ball, cover, and
refrigerate for 1 hour. Or, freeze the dough in log shape and bake cookies
later.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Divide dough in half; keep remaining half covered.
Roll to 1/4-inch thickness between sheets of waxed paper or plastic
wrap sprinkled with rice flour. Cut cookies with heart-shaped, metal cookie cutters.
Transfer to ungreased, nonstick baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining dough.
For easy handling, roll dough on parchment paper or Teflon baking
liners, cut out cookies, remove scraps, and transfer liner-cookies and all to baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are set.
Cool 2 minutes before moving from pan.
Cool thoroughly before decorating
