Last year we made shortbread hearts. You can see that post with the recipe here.
Today I’m baking cherry raspberry tarts. It was Valentine’s Day 1974 and I arrived home from school to a wonderful surprise. My mom had made heart-shaped tarts filled with a pink fluffy cherry filling of cherry jello and cool whip. Ever since then, my must-have Valentine’s dessert is tarts… but I’ve never made them. I was always too busy or didn’t have the ingredients. I’ve made cherry tarts just a handful of times all these years but never on Valentine’s Day. Today will be the day!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! May your day be full of sweetness that lingers in the most pleasant way.
I’ve never been one to bake on Valentine’s Day but today you’ve inspired me to bake a strawberry cake with white frosting and sprinkles!
Yay for baking on Valentine’s Day! I haven’t had opportunity to use sprinkles for a long time. Sprinkles are magical on baked goods.
