Peek-a-boo jelly valentines.

Bake it!


batch of chilled sugar-cookie dough (go to for a recipe, or use the pre-made kind) * raspberry or strawberry jelly * plastic wrap * flour * rolling pin * large heart cookie cutter * small heart cookie cutter * greased cookie sheets


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, and cut out big hearts. On every other cookie, use the small cookie cutter to cut a little heart out of the big heart. You need one big heart and one heart outline for every finished cookie. Roll the cut-out little hearts back into the dough, repeating the above until all the dough is used.

3. The outline will cook faster than the solid hearts, so place them on separate cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until each is cooked but not brown.

4. Allow the cookies to cool, then spread jelly on each big heart (see photo 1). Top the big heart with the cut-out heart (see photo 2). Whatta buncha sweethearts!
