Jam I am
Countdown to Valentine’s Day
Day II: Here’s a tasty treat for you. It’s a buttery little cookie with a sweet spot of jam. I would have used a small heart cookie cutter, but the person who borrowed it to use with Play-Doh left it out. The dog chewed it up. Kind of like my homework. Enjoy!
Aunt Bernice’s Jam Hearts
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 c. butter
4 1/2 ounces cream cheese
Combine ingredients and mix until a crumbly dough forms.
Roll dough 1/4-inch thick. (Dough will be stiff.) Make hearts or other shapes with a small cookie cutter and place on baking sheet. Push a thumbprint in each and dot with a teaspoon of strawberry jam. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Share with someone you love!
Note: A heart cookie cutter really does take the cake, although round cookies are tasty, too!
