If you think you have no baking skills, but would like to surprise your loved one(s) on Valentine’s day, this may be a solution to your problem(s)! Well, some of them, anyway…
With little time and good will, you could make these and surprise even yourself 😉
Ingredients (love potion #9)
All you need is (time, will and a little bit of love):
1 puff pastry sheet bought in the store (you want this quick, right?)
jam of your desire (as tunes to your heart’s rhythm)
1 egg (that’s kind of a standard ingredient in cakes)
a bit of dark chocolate to sprinkle the hearts (because love is sometimes bitter-sweet)
Preparation (you’ll have to work for it)
Though not a lot. You need time to invest in other areas after all. 😉
Roll the puff pastry on a floured surface. Make hearts with the larger heart mould. Spread some jam on one heart, cover with another heart.
Press the edges with a fork to keep the hearts closed. Unless you want broken hearts…
Beat the egg and brush it on the hearts.
Place them on a baking pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-12 min.
If you desire, melt a bit of dark chocolate on steam and sprinkle with the spoon on the hearts. You can sprinkle them whit icing sugar as well. That’s that bitter-sweet element we mentioned before 😉
I hope you will try to surprise yourself and make some puffy hearts this Valentine’s day :))
