Valentines Day Pastry Love Letters


  • Store bought pie crust

  • About 1/2 cup of your favorite flavor jam

  • 1 egg

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar (for sprinkling on top, optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Cut out as many diamond shapes of dough as you can form the premade pie crust. Mine were about 3" x 3". Use the video for reference.

  2. Save the dough scraps! Cut out little hearts from the scraps. These little hearts can go in the center of the letter later on.

  3. Place the diamond cut dough pieces onto the prepared cookie sheet about 2" apart.

  4. Place about 1 tsp. of jam in the center of each one.

  5. Whisk the egg in a small bowl to make an egg wash.

  6. Use a pastry brush to apply a small amount of egg wash to the sides of the diamond. This will help the dough stick together.

  7. Begin by folding the left and right side of the diamond inward setting the two points at the center.

  8. Fold the bottom point in the center so that the sides and bottom points all meet. Again, use the video above for reference to help you throughout this recipe.

  9. Brush egg wash over the entire love letter then stick on a little heart in the center of each one.

  10. Sprinkle a bit of sugar on top of each one then bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

  11. Let cool and enjoy! ❤️
