Puffy Hearts

Puffy Hearts
2 cups all−purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter
8 ounce cold cream cheese
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon water
Coarse sugar (optional)
Cherry, raspberry or apricot preserves
Almond paste
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter and cream cheese until well combined (a food
processor works well for this). Divide dough in half. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least one
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to one−eighth inch thickness. Cut out heart shapes with a
two−inch cookie cutter. Place half the cutouts on an ungreased cookie sheet. Place a scant quarter
teaspoon of preserves and a quarter teaspoon of the almond paste in the center of each heart.
Combine egg and water. Brush edges of heart with egg mixture. Top each heart with a second heart,
pressing edges with the tines of a fork. Brush finished hearts with an egg mixture. If desired, sprinkle
tops with coarse sugar. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a
wire rack.
