Ingredients

How to make it

  • # Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl.
  • # Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • # Mix in the almonds and sugar.
  • # Stir in enough milk to form a stiff dough.
  • # Press the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • # Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • # Place parchment paper on two cookie sheets.
  • # Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  • # Use a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out 48 cookies.
  • # Use a spatula to transfer 24 of the cookies to the prepared cookie sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart.
  • # Use a 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the centers from twelve of the cookies. Set aside the cookies with cut-out centers.
  • # Gather the dough scraps, including the leftover hearts, re-roll, and continue cutting out cookies and outlines until all the dough is used.
  • # Brush the edges of the whole cookies with the beaten egg and place the hearts with the cut-out centers on top to raise the edges.
  • # Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown, rotating the sheets halfway through for even baking.
  • # Drop teaspoons of the preserves into the cookie centers.
  • # Transfer to racks to cool.
  • #Serve to the one you love!
