What do you get when you combine butter cookies, jam, and cute heart shapes? These adorable (and incredibly delicious) Valentine’s Day cookies!
These cookies taste AMAZING! I’m not just saying that either. To be honest, when I found this recipe on MarthaStewart.com, I thought that the cookies would look really cute but wouldn’t quite be my cup of tea, because of the jam. I’m typically not a big fan of fruit-flavored cookies. I stand to be corrected though, because I just can’t stop eating them! I’m definitely going to make these again as soon as I get the chance!
What I particularly like about these cookies is that after you assemble them into little heart sandwiches, the jam begins to soak into the cookies. Especially if they are stored in an airtight container, the cookies begin to get a little softer and more moist (without becoming mushy or soggy). Since I much prefer soft cookies to crunchy ones, this made me love the recipe even more!
I experimented a little bit by adding shredded coconut to a few of the cookies after they were finished. I much preferred the look and taste of the cookies without it, though. In the future, I would consider melting white chocolate and drizzling it in a zigzag pattern across the cookies, however.
Since I’m in the Valentine’s Day spirit and feel like spreading the love, I am sharing this recipe with you here: Valentine’s Day Jam-Filled Heart Cookies. Feel free to print it off and stick it in your recipe book. I guarantee it’ll become a Valentine’s Day favorite of yours for the future!
