I love a good shortbread cookie and discovered a recipe for traditional linzer cookies and I decided to make ones with hearts. How are you spending your Valentine’s Day?

  4. Using your round cookie cutter, cut out the dough into circles. Cut hearts into half of the cookie cutouts.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Allow them to cool at room temperature. Once they have cooled spread strawberry jam onto the the sides that don't have the hearts. Sprinkle powdered sugar on the sides with the hearts. Press both sides together.
