Form the sugar cookie dough into small balls with a tablespoon of the batter, and slightly flatten.
Place the formed cookies into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Cut the red gummy bears in half lengthwise. You will need one gummy bear for each cookie.
Gently press down with your index or pinky finger into the center of each cookie, forming a “v” or heart shape. These cookies turn out better if you can create a fairly deep indent by going back and pressing down with the tip of your finger, but be careful not to push too far through the bottom of the cookie.
Place one half of the red gummy bear into each of the two sections of the heart shape on each cookie.
Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes until they are cooked through, and the gummy bears have melted in the center.
If your gummy bears are not completely melted, you can take a toothpick, and swirl them around to finish melting them and distribute the gummy candy around the heart shape on each cookie.
