Big Puffy heart tart

I love a good theme. And Valentine’s Day is the opportunity to get heartsy. I’ve even gone so far as to don a red sweatshirt emblazoned with puffy paint hearts.

Even without being a kindergarten teacher.

That’s how cheesey I have been in my day. Nowadays, I try to take a more relaxed, unobtrusive approach to special holidays. But, if I can squeeze in a heart or two, I will do it. I wasn’t born in the seventies for nothing.

These Big Puffy Heart Tarts are as tasty as they are cute. And they are so easy, you will be shocked and amazed.

    FishMama Help!! I’d love to make these today we have been snowed in this weekend and I could use a great easy puff pastry recipe. Do you have one?

      Puff pastry is pretty tricky. I only buy it. You could make these with pie dough for a slightly different texture.

    What a simple and wonderful and yummy looking idea!!

  3. Made these today for my brood – i used the jello jiggler cookie cutters i had, with everyone’s initials :). Turned out cute and a big hit with my littles (and biggies, too!)

    How much jam did you put on each rectangle? I just don’t want it too explode and have heart attack tarts… 🙂

    • Probably about a tablespoon. Not very much. If the pastry isn’t well sealed, it leaks sometimes. 🙁

        Thanks for the tips, I look forward to making these tomorrow night for a bake sale. I love your blog, recipes and tips!

          These were a hit! Thanks for the great recipes. I used a sweet cherry jam for filling and it looked fantastic. My kids want nutella filled ones!
