Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fruit jam (strawberry, raspberry, or your favorite flavor)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Instructions

1
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
3
In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
4
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt.
5
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture, mixing until a dough forms. Be careful not to overmix.
6
Divide the dough in half. Roll out one half of the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4-inch thickness.
7
Use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookies from the rolled dough. Place the heart-shaped cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
8
Use a smaller heart-shaped cutter or a knife to cut a smaller heart-shaped hole in the center of half of the cookies. These will be the top cookies.
9
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
10
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
11
Once the cookies are completely cool, spread a thin layer of fruit jam on the bottom side of the solid heart-shaped cookies.
12
Place the heart-shaped cookies with the center cutout on top of the jam-covered cookies to create a sandwich.
13
Optionally, dust the top cookies with powdered sugar for a lovely finish.
14
Your heart-shaped Valentine's Day jam cookies are ready to be enjoyed! Share them with your loved ones and celebrate the day of love.

These cookies are not only delicious but also make a heartfelt and thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy baking and sharing the love!
