Ingredients

Puff Pastry Hearts

  • 1 pkg Puff Pastry
  • 1 jar Jam/preserves (or a variety of your favourite jams!)

Egg Wash + Garnish

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Heavy Cream or Half-and-Half
  • 1 TB Coarse Sugar sprinkle on after egg wash

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 cup Confectioners Sugar
  • 2 TB Heavy Cream add more to thin the glaze
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  1. Roll out puff-pastry onto a lightly floured surface.

  2. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, begin cutting out hearts being meticulous to get the most out of your dough. (I rolled my scraps together to get more hearts out of it)

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and heavy cream to create your egg wash. Using your finger, brushes the outer edges of half the hearts with egg wash.

  4. Spoon one and a half Tablespoons of jam/preserves onto the center of the egg-wash lined hearts. Place remaining hearts on top of jam-topped hearts. Using a fork, press around the edges of the hearts, sealing them together.

  5. Place hearts on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet, and place into the freezer for at least 10-15 minutes.

  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  7. Once the hearts are chilled, using a pastry brush, brush them with the remaining egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  8. Bake hearts for 15-20 minutes, or until they're golden brown and puffy.

  9. While hearts are baking, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together confectioners sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Add more cream if it's too thick for your liking, or add more confectioners sugar if it's too runny.

  10. Once done baking, remove puff pastry hearts from the oven and place them on a cooling rack. Once they're somewhat cooled, drizzle them with the vanilla glaze and enjoy!
