Love it, Katniss! You are a mind-reader. I was very much thinking of human heart shapes rather than valentine's heart shapes. Does this make us abby-normal?

Old Fashion Oatmeal Valentine Cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (scoop and level to measure)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened slightly (it should still be somewhat cold and firm)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups rolled old fashioned oats *not quick cook
1 cup raisins** add 1 cup chocolate chips if you like
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt, set aside.
Cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until soft and creamy (consistency of cream cheese)
Mix in one egg, then blend in second egg and vanilla.
Add flour mixture and mix just until combined.
Mix in oats, raisins and walnuts.
If dough is too sticky too shape into balls you can chill for 30 minutes or just use two spoons to drop mounds onto baking sheets.
Scoop dough out and shape into 1 1/2-inch balls (or 40 grams each), transfer to prepared baking sheet fitting 12 per sheet and spacing 2-inches apart.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on edges and nearly set (center should look under-baked), about 12 – 14 minutes.
Cut into heart shapes (cookies will crumble.. eat the crumbs) 1.jpg
Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Try adding a slice of bread to container with baked cookies to keep them soft and moist, just don't lay it directly on cookies or it can make those it's resting on soggy.
