Raspberry Jam Valentine Cookies


20 Cookies




1 hour  10 minutes


North American

1.  Preheat the oven to 350F.


2. To a large bowl add the butter and beat with a hand-mixer until light and fluffy. Add in the granulated sugar egg and vanilla and continue mixing.


3. Add in 1 cup of the confectioner's sugar and the baking powder and mix until combined.


4. Slowly add in the flour a 1/4 cup at a time and blend with the hand-mixer. When the dough becomes denser you can stop with the hand-mixer and move on to a fork or your hands to combine and form into a ball.


5.  On a lightly floured surface roll 1/2 of the dough out to an 1/8 inch thickness and cut with the large heart-shaped cookie cutter. Transfer the cookie hearts to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges just start to brown.


6.  Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack.


7.  Roll the other half of the dough out as you did before and cut again with the large heart-shaped cookie cutter and then again with the smaller heart cookie cutter in the centre being sure to leave a 1/2 inch border.


8.  Place the heart cutouts on the baking sheet and carefully remove the smallest heart in the centre. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookie just start to brown. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer to a wire rack. Allow the cookies to cool completely.


9.  Once the cookies have cooled spread the raspberry jam over the bottom solid heart-shaped cookie splitting the jam between the cookies. Gently place the "framed" heart cut-out on top of the jam pressing down very very lightly so that the top cookie sticks to the jam.


10.  Using a marker trace the outline of the smallest heart cookie cutter on a piece of paper. Cut the heart out using scissors. Roll a piece of tape and stick it to the paper heart.


11. Place the paper heart lightly on top of the jam centre using the tape as a little handle.


12.  Add a 1/4 cup of confectioner's sugar to a small sieve and gently shake over the cookie to dust. Remove the paper heart from the centre of the cookie. Repeat with the rest of the cookies.
