      I am so sorry that I am just now seeing this question. I have been traveling for Zoes Kitchen and have not been in here as much as I should be.
      I will blog that recipe for Valentines Day meanwhile I have pasted below.
      Please follow me and tell me how the recipe is
      Shortbread Black and White Hearts

      1 cup butter softened
      2/3 cup sugar
      1 egg yolk
      2 teaspoons vanilla
      2 cups flour
      ½ teaspoon salt
      1 egg
      ¼ sanding or coarse sugar
      1 ½ cups 60% cocoa Ghirardelli’s chocolate chips

      Using and electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add egg yolk, vanilla and salt, mix well. Add flour slowly. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Place dough into 2 zip lock bags and press flat. Chill dough in refrigerator for 4 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough on lightly floured surface, cut heart shapes and place on greased cookie sheets. Beat eggs with a few drops of water, brush the tops of cookies and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes. When cookies have cooled completely, melt chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, dip hearts into the chocolate ½ way. Place hearts on parchment paper until set. For easier dipping, freeze cookies in advance.
