It’s not too late if you’re still needing to make a few cute Valentine’s treats for tomorrow! These cuties use simple store bought ingredients and are snap to put together. Here’s how I did it.
First, I picked up some pre-made pie crusts and some jam.
Cut circles out of the pie crust using a small glass.
Next, you spread a thin layer of jam in the center of one circle.
And cut out a cute little heart out of the other side. Too cute, huh?
Then, you put them together with a lollipop stick inserted between them. You can get the sticks at Michael’s or wherever.
And just to put the cuteness over the top, use another lollipop stick to make crimps all the way around.
Now you’re ready for mass production.
Once you’ve got them all put together, place them on a cookie sheet and brush the tops with egg whites.
Stick them in the oven at 350* for about 15 minutes – you’ll want check on them to make sure they don’t burn. Once they are golden brown, take them out of the oven and let them cool.
I packaged mine up using a simple clear bag and a super cute label I downloaded for free – Be My Sweetie Pie! DY-ING – too cute! I can’t wait to spread a little love tomorrow. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!
P.S. This is the first non-gluten free thing I’ve posted on my blog but you could easily make a simple pie dough with the Cup4Cup flour I love so much and make these gluten-free!
