  • Roll out each dough separately. Cut the cookies out in circles using a cookie cutter or a cup. Then cut a hole in the center using a smaller circle, or another shape (I used a heart). Use this same smaller cutter to cut the brownie dough. Place the brownie dough in the hole of the cookies and repeat until all the cookies are cut out.
