Valentine’s Day Cookies

My Valentine’s Day Cook­ies are sim­i­lar to the Hal­loween Sablés Cook­ies I loved mak­ing for Hal­loween. The idea is the same, but, since these are Valentine’s day cook­ies, I am using heart-shaped cook­ie cut­ters and straw­ber­ry pre­serve for the red col­or. I also decid­ed to use a dif­fer­ent recipe for the dough, that does not con­tain any almond flour. That way, you can gift the cook­ies to every­one, includ­ing those with nut aller­gies.

French recipe here. As I men­tioned before, I am using straw­ber­ry pre­serve. Alter­na­tive­ly, you could use rasp­ber­ry pre­serve or any oth­er red pre­serve.

You will need heart-shaped cook­ie cut­ters.

Instruc­tions
  1. Pre­heat oven to 350 degrees Fahren­heit.
  2. Mix the flour, soft­ened but­ter, gran­u­lat­ed sug­ar, salt and egg, either by hand or by putting it in your food proces­sor, until you have a uni­form dough. Gath­er the dough into a ball.

  3. Using a rolling pin, roll it out, and use your cook­ie cut­ters to cut out your cook­ies. For each cook­ie you will be mak­ing, you will need one “bot­tom” cook­ie and one top “cook­ie.” So if you are mak­ing dif­fer­ent shapes, make sure you have at least 2 of each shape (one will be the top cook­ie, the oth­er one the bot­tom). Make an open­ing on each cook­ie what you intend to use as a top cook­ie. I used a small­er heart-shaped cook­ie cut­ter to make the open­ing. If you don’t have a small­er cook­ie cut­ter, you can draw an open­ing with a knife.

  4. Place your cook­ies on a bak­ing pan cov­ered with parch­ment paper. Bake for 10–15 min­utes (depend­ing on the thick­ness of your cook­ies).

  5. Spread straw­ber­ry pre­serve on the cook­ies with no open­ings (the bot­tom cook­ies). Sprin­kle pow­dered sug­ar on the cook­ies with open­ings (the top cook­ies).

  6. Then, place each top cook­ie on top of its bot­tom cook­ie. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Tip: keep the part you removed to make an open­ing on your top cook­ies. You will have small heart cook­ies, that you can sprin­kle with pow­dered sug­ar before serv­ing.
