- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1-1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cold (or frozen) and cut into 48 small pieces
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 6 – 7 tablespoons ice water
- Cherry jam (or other filling of your choice – think jam, peanut butter or Nutella)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees before starting.
- You need to combine flour, salt and sugar in a bowl the add butter and shortening and beat until your mixture is thick.
- Start sprinkling the ice water by about a tablespoon at a time over the flour/shortening mixture
- Flour your work surface and lightly start kneading your dough into flat disks using a rolling pin
- Once the dough reaches 1/4 inch in thickness, use a 2 or 3 inch heart shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes out of the pie dough.
- After you have your dough cut into heart shaped pieces, you can start the filling part. Spoon a bit of cherry jam or your filling of choice in the centre of half of the hearts.
- Now that you are almost done, place a lollipop stick on each crust, pushing down with a bit of pressure so it kind of sticks into the dough but make sure you don’t push too hard.
