Valentine is around the corner and this is a super simple recipe you can make, it has few ingredients you mostly likely have at home. They contain all-purpose flour, sugar, butter, almonds, one egg, vanilla extract, and cherry jam. Happen to have those at home? If so, let’s have a look at this hand pie, which I specifically made for Valentine! These hand pies are perfect to take along as they fit into any plastic box (no hassle dragging a three-tier cake along), they can be prepared in advance, and they are so small that you can share with more than only your Valentine. On top, they simply are cute to look at and they can be frozen easily. These cherry hand pies are the best!
OK, maybe I am cheesy, but this year I decided to make something for Valentine’s. I still think if you want to express your love for somebody, you don’t need a special day to do so. But hey, let’s just ignore that and instead be happy that we get to make French macarons again. Heart-shaped French macarons that is to say. With chocolate ganache. Do I need to say more?
