Here is what you need
-3 cups All Purpose Flour
-3/4 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
-1 cup Sugar
-1 Egg, beaten
-1 Tbsp Milk
-Flour for rolling dough
First, stir your flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
-6 ounces Cream Cheese, at room temp.
-4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, at room temp.
-1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar
-1 Tbsp Pomegranate Juice
-small Red Sugar Hearts
-2 1/4 inch round cookie cutters, 1 1/2 by 1 inch heart shaped cookie cutter
Sprinkle your work surface and rolling pin with flour, and roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Add more flour to the work surface, as you move the dough around, to help with sticking.
Side Note: Be very careful when lifting the heart rounds from the surface, they tend to sometimes strech and lose their shape.
Spread about a tsp of filling on each round cookie and top with a cut out cookie. Do the same with your mini hearts. Place a red candy heart in the center of each.
