Just in time for Valentine's Day, how about using this linzer cookies recipe to make pretty jelly-filled cookies to share with the people you love!

The best thing about these cookies is they're a combination of crispy shortbread with sweet fruitiness. Yum!

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 ℉.

In a medium bowl, combine butter and clear vanilla.

Cream butter and vanilla together.

Mix in powdered sugar and cornstarch. Mix until combined. Add in the flour.

Using your hands, mix the ingredients and form the dough. It gets pretty sticky.

Once the ingredients are combined and you have your sticky dough, dust your hands and a clean surface with powdered sugar. Grab the dough and form it into a ball. Continue to add powdered sugar until dough is less sticky and ready to roll out.

Roll out the dough on a powdered sugared covered surface.

Use a large heart cookie cutter to cut out the “base” and “tops” of the cookies. Cut an even number of tops and bottoms.

Line the hearts on a greased cookie sheet. Using a small heart cookie cutter, center it on the tops of the heart cutouts and cut a small heart in the center.
