Valentine's Day Raspberry Window Cookies

February 11, 2012

I wanted to make something fun and tasty to gift my co-workers for Valentine's day, but I didn't want it to be anything too difficult or labour intensive. I decided on window cookies and simply used my mom's sugar cookie recipe.
Raspberry window cookies
I used two heart-shaped cookie cutters – one a little smaller than the other. I cut out the large hearts, and then removed the centers of half the shapes with the smaller cutter. I found the hearts retained their shape if I cut out the centers when the cookies were already on the baking sheet.

Once the cookies were baked and cooled, I spread seedless raspberry jam over the large shapes, and then used the jam to 'glue' the other shape on top. You could use any type of jam you like, but I prefer the look of the seedless variety.

Once the jam has had a little time to set (it will remain a bit sticky) you can package the cookies in whatever manner you like to make them into a sweet Valentine's day treat. enjoy!
