  • Jam of any flavour of your choice as required
  • Softened butter 1¼ cups
  • Powdered sugar 1 cup
  • Eggs 2
  • Refined flour (maida) 3 cups + for dusting
  • Baking powder 1 tsp
  • Nutmeg powder ¼ tsp
  • Clove powder ¼ tsp
  • Salt ½ tsp
  • Powdered almonds 1 cup
  • Icing sugar to dust


  • Take butter in a mixing bowl, add powdered sugar and mix with a wooden spoon till well mixed.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, and beat with an electric beater till the mixture is creamy and fluffy.
  • Mix refined flour and baking powder together in another bowl and then add it to the butter-sugar mixture. Add nutmeg powder, clove powder and salt and mix everything well to make a dough.
  • Add almond powder and mix well. Keep the mixture in the refrigerator for 1 hour so that it sets.
  • Preheat oven to 180º C. Line a baking tray with butter paper
  • Dust a little flour on your worktop, keep the dough over it and roll it as thinly as possible. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin, dust a little flour over the rolled out sheet and continue to roll till you get the desired thinness.
  • Keep a heart shaped cookie cutter over the sheet and cut out 8 heart shaped cookies. Now keep a smaller heart shaped cookie cutter in the centre of 4 cookies and cut. Remove the extra dough around the hearts.
  • Keep all the cookie hearts on the prepared baking tray, keep the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Bring the tray out of the oven and spread out the cookie hearts on the work top.
  • Smoothen the jam and spread 1 tbsp of it over each full heart. Take icing sugar in a sieve and dust it over the cut out hearts. Keep each cut out heart over a full heart and press gently.
  • Take some jam in an icing syringe bottle and fill up the cut out centres with more jam.
  • Arrange them on a serving plate and serve.
