These devilishly delicious cookies are inspired by Pretty Little Liars’ always-watching (and ever-mysterious) “A.” The hit ABC Family show returns on June 11 and since we know that moms can’t resist tuning in with their daughters, here’s a must-bake treat to eat during the season premiere.

If the dough gets to soft to work with, place it in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
Roll out the cookie dough between two sheets of parchement paper to 1/4 inch thick. It may be easier to work in smaller batches.
Cut out hearts using a large heart shaped cookie cutter. Place the hearts on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Using a butter knife, gently cut lightning bolt shaped crackes into the cookie, starting at the middle and cutting half way down the right side. Leave the heart attached by a inch at the base of the crack.
Bake the cookies according to the recipe, then gently set aside to cool.
Once all the cookies are baked and cooled, make your decorative white cookie icing according to your favorite recipe. Pour the icing into a small plastic sandwich baggie. Cut away the corner about a half inch size snip. Pipe the icing onto the cookies, using a butter knife to spread the icing evenly over the cookie before the icing dries. Allow the icing to fully dry - about 15 minutes.
Once the icing is dry, use your red decorating gel tube to write (-A) on the left side of the cookies.
