Hearts-filled-with-Love Cookies

Hearts-filled-with-Love Cookies

Fill these favorites with raspberry or strawberry jelly.

Sift together:

2 1/2 c flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream together:

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar

Stir in:

1 well beaten egg
2 tablespoons Pet Milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Chill overnight before using. Roll-out dough and cut with a heart cookie cutter. Each cookie needs a top and bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

When cool, assemble cookies. Place a teaspoon of jelly on the bottom of a cookie, then cover with another cookie. (The tops of the cookies should be facing outward on both top and bottom.) Sprinkle with 4X Confectioner's Sugar.
