If you think that preparing homemade baked goods is complicated and time-consuming, let me correct that misconception. It doesn't have to be so, and the recipe for today's delightful sweets proves exactly that.

To create these charming cookies, all you'll need are a few basic ingredients and 20 minutes. That's it, it doesn't get simpler, faster or easier!

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry,
  • a few tablespoons of rose marmalade,
  • 1 egg for glazing the pastry,
  • fresh fruits for decoration — strawberries, raspberries, blueberries,
  • powdered sugar for decoration.

Instructions:

Step 1. The process starts with the ready-made puff pastry sheet. Lay it on the kitchen counter, then divide it into 12 equal squares.

Step 2. On half of these squares, make an additional cutout using a cookie cutter. In this instance, I've used a heart shape. But feel free to use other cutters and shapes as per your preference.

Step 3. Spread rose marmalade on the full squares using a regular tablespoon. Ensure you spread the sweet mixture only in the center of the pastry. The pastry is then covered with the matching halves, the pieces with the heart cut out.
