if you’re looking for an easy and delicious cookie recipe for the holidays (specially valentine), you’ve found it, can be served with a hot cup of coffee, or be the perfect dessert for a romantic valentine day. It takes no time and you only need 4 ingredients to make it, also you’ll have a lot of fun making it. I’ve used strawberry jam to fill the heart cookies, you can use any other fruit jam you like. also you can change the shape if you like, is so easy to make that I think is not necessary to write the recipe, just seeing the pictures you’ll get the idea, but in any case…

    I have a couple of questions for you. :)

    1) How did you get your hearts to stay so pretty? Mine get squished when I try to mov them.
    2) How big are your hearts?

    • Sara Kasprowicz says:

      Once the crust gets warm, it becomes sticky and won’t move well. I suggest putting your rolled out pie crust back in the fridge for 10-15 min. before cutting the shapes. Once it is cold again, cutting and moving it should be easier. :)

  2. Lysle Meyer says:

    Place the first heart on the cookie sheet (on parchment paper would help) and put the filling (not much) and 2nd heart on top. Then you don’t have to move the hearts until they are baked.

  3. Can you replace the filling with something else? Perhaps a cherry? Or will that not work?

  4. Love these! The cookies look so easy to make and super fast! Thank you for sharing! xoxo

  5. Does it have to regular milk or would almond milk work?

  6. Would these work using sugar cookie dough instead of pie crust??

    We are going to do this. yummy.

  8. Tried these out for my daughter’s Valentines Day party. I wish I had read the comments before attempting to make them. It definitely would have helped if I put the pie crust back in the fridge before working with it and if I had cut the shapes directly on the cookie sheet. The party is tomorrow so we’ll see of they’re a hit with a group of 9-year-olds.
