While looking through my recipe file last weekend, I came across one of my favorite cookie recipes from my special friend, Nancy, who shared this recipe with me more than thirty years ago. These heart shaped cookies are a great choice for buttering up your favorite Valentine!
1lb butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
6 cups flour
Raspberry jam (may also use strawberry)
Beat butter with sugar until fluffy. Roll out thin (1/2 inch) and cut with small heart cutter. Spatula onto an ungreased pan.Bake at 400 degrees only 5-7 minutes. Cool.
Spread thin layer of raspberry or strawberry jam on one side of cookie. Place second cookie on top.
Optional: Glaze cookies before baking with 2 egg yolks and 2 Tablespoons water
