  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • candy sprinkles or red colored sugar
  • raspberry or strawberry jam


Beat together butter and shortening on medium speed for 1 minute. Add 1 cup of the flour, egg, sugar, milk, banilla, baking powder, and salt. Beat until well mixed. Add the rest of the flour and beat well. Cover dough and chill for a few hours.

Lightly flour counter top and roll out the dough so it is about 1/8 of an inch thick. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make cookies.

Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375F degrees for 6-8 minutes.

Let cookies cool on racks. Then spread jam on top of half the cookies, and top with another cookie so you have a little "cookie sandwich." Spread sprinkles or red colored sugar on top.
