Ingredients List

How To Make Puff Pastry Hearts With Jam

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line your baking sheet with oven-safe parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Next, lightly flour your work surface and roll out the puff pastry sheet. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes from the dough. If you don’t have a heart cookie cutter, you can cut a piece of cardboard into a heart shape and use that as your guide.
  4. Place the heart shapes onto your baking sheet. Leave plenty of room between each heart.
  5. Spread a layer of your cream cheese mixture onto each heart, leaving a small border around the edges.
  6. Then, add some raspberry or strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese filling on each pastry heart. For a swirl effect, you can drag a toothpick through the jam.
  7. Now, brush the edges of each heart pastry with the beaten egg. This will ensure a beautiful golden finish on the pastries.
  8. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the pastries start to turn golden brown.
  9. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the hearts to cool on a wire rack.
  10. For an extra special touch, dust with powdered sugar or drizzle with icing before serving.
