As Valentine’s Day approaches you definitely want to have a sweet recipe to prepare for your loved one. These jam heart cookies sound like the best idea.
The ingredient list includes: 1 large egg yolk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2/3 cup raspberry jam, 16 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Before you begin set the oven to 325 F degrees and get two baking sheets. Mix the 2/3 sugar and butter and beat them together. Add the vanilla extract, egg yolk, flour and salt as well. You will get a dough, which you should divide into two parts, and put one of them in the fridge.
Use the second one to form a disk and start making the heart-shaped cookies with a cutter. Form smaller hearts on the inside on half of the cookies. Put all of the cookies on the baking sheet and put them in the oven. Bake for 12 minutes and take them out. Wait for 5 minutes and you can start covering them with jam. Cover the parts that don’t have a small heart with the raspberry jam and cover them with the other halves. Cover them with the sugar. This is when your jam heart cookies are done.
