HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Sunday, February 14, 2016
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I hope your day is filled with love from the people around you, or just love for yourself like you deserve. I am ending my WEEK OF LOVE series on a sweet note, with some delicious Strawberry Jam Linzer Cookies! These are super easy to make and you more than likely have all the ingredients already in your cupboard and refrigerator. I went the easy route and bought a pre-made dough mix from the grocery store, it just was a lot faster than making my own.

 WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • (1 Bag) Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
  • (1/2 Cup) Softened Butter or Margarine
  • (1 TBSP) All-Purpose Flour
  • (1) Egg
  • (2) Heart-Shaped Cookie Cutters - 1 large, 1 small
  • (1) Rolling Pin
  • (1/3 Cup) Strawberry Jam
  • (1/4 Cup) Confectioner's Sugar

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F 
  2. Stir Cookie Mix, Softened Butter, Egg and Flour in Medium Bowl until soft dough forms
  3. Shape dough into round ball, and cut in half.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out one half of dough to about 1/4 or 1/8th thickness. Cut out cookies with large heart-shaped cookie cutter. Use small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut a window out of half of cookies. Transfer cookies to prepared baking sheets.
  5. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Bake cookies in batches for 7-8 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. 
  7. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet. Cool completely on a wire wrack.
  8. Spread 3/4 tsp of jam on flat side of each cookie that does not have a window. Top with remaining cookies, flat side down, so jam is showing. Carefully sift Confectioner's Sugar over the top of each cookie. 
  9. ENJOY!
