How do you make a heart-shaped cookie without cutter?
The best part about these cookies is that the heart shape is in the center of the cookie. This means that you’ll be able to make the heart using the back of a spoon or even your thumb easily!
Can you change the flavor of the jam inside the cookies?
Absolutely! I like to use raspberry jam because of the red coloring, but you can easily use strawberry jam, cherry jam, blueberry jam, blackberry jam, or any other flavor of jam that you’d like.
How to store cookies to keep them soft
One of the biggest things to remember when you’re storing cookies is that you need to keep them stored in an airtight container so that they’re soft. These don’t have to be stored in the fridge but can be.
Can you freeze cookies?
Yep! Once the cookies have cooled down, just add them to a freezer-safe storage bag or container and put them in the fridge. They’ll be ready to thaw when you’re ready to eat them next.
