Valentine's Day Recipes: Win their hearts with a sweet treat (NC) - These cookies should pave the way straight to your Valentine's heart, courtesy of homebasics.ca:
In a large bowl, cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in hazelnuts. Mix dry ingredients into creamed margarine. Roll dough between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness. Refrigerate rolled dough in parchment paper for at least 2 hours or until firm enough to work with.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
Cut dough into 2-inch heart-shaped cookies. Use a 1-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut a hole in the centre of half the rounds. Place the 2-inch whole cookies on one parchment lined cookie sheet, and the cookies with cut-out centres on a separate parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 17-22 minutes or until golden. Cookies with their centres cut out will cook faster. Transfer cookies to cookie racks to cool. When cool, place 3/4 tsp jam in centre of each whole cookie, then place one cut-out round over each jam covered cookie and press gently to secure.
