Steps

1
Done

Add the flour in a large bowl.
Add the baking powder, salt, and butter. Start mixing using the tip of your fingers until butter is absorbed and the dough has the aspect of crumbles.

2
Done

Add the sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Mix until you obtain a smooth, firm, and elastic dough. Refrigerate it for the next 30 minutes.

3
Done

For the cherry jam, heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add the frozen cherries, water, lemon juice, and sugar. Mix and bring to a boil. Mix the cornstarch with water in a small bowl. Stir, and keep it on heat until it thickens.

4
Done

Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

5
Done

Dust your working space with flour, take out the dough, and divide it into 4 equal parts.

6
Done

Grab one of the quarters and level it with a rolling pin. Using a 2 inches (5 cm) heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 6 hearts from the dough. Using a 1 inch (2.5 cm) heart-shaped cooking cutter, cut out a small heart-shaped opening in the middle of one of the pie crust hearts. This piece will be the top crust. Repeat the steps until you have used up all of your dough.

7
Done

Brush the bottom sides with egg white. Top with a teaspoon of cherry jam, and finish it with the top crust. Pinch the sides with a fork and brush with egg wash.

8
Done

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and top it with the cherry jam cookies. Slide the tray into the oven for the next 25 minutes.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
