A Sweet Heart

So one day this week my little sweetheart and I decided to make some Sweet Hearts since Valentine's Day is around the corner and all.

So he took up his station at the end of the counter and set right to work.

We opted to use pre-made pie crust. That's much easier. We cut out hearts - twenty hearts to be exact.

It is said that the uglier your stone is = the better it works. Obviously mine works really, really well.

Next we put a dollop of raspberry jelly in the middle of each heart. Truth be told, we ate some of the raspberry jelly right off the spoon. Mommy's might not do that sort of thing - but grandma's do!

Next we moistened the edge of each heart and laid another heart on top. Then we crimped the edges together with a fork. Easy peasy.

Oh, by the way. That football shaped cookie in the upper row? That was a special cookie made for Tyler - who LOVES footballs. It made his day.

Then we stuck them in the oven set at 350 degrees. And waited.

They were worth the wait. We dusted them with powdered sugar.

And then we dug in.

Tic . . . .

Tac . . . . .

Toe . . . .

They didn't last long.

P.S. Did you notice my new little ticker over to the right? I am elated!
