Valentines Hearts

V-day is always exciting to party with lots of yummy dishes and memorable presents from loved ones – well...that’s the way I adore my dear ones:)!
Valentine symbols, cupid- roses- hearts- love birds-love knots are quite famous even to this day and are made so attractive that it’s hard to take away one’s eye from them. But I wonder why cupid was chosen as an icon of Valentine’s Day – Because when I think about romance, a short chubby toddler coming to me with a weapon in his hand would be the last thing that comes on my mind LOL......too ingenious isn’t it ;)...Hmmm anyways....

Well...this time I made a perfect treat for my Valentine, a heart shaped dessert with cream & strawberries sandwiched and topped with chocolaty sugar Ummmmm yum yum!

And a sweet addition for our V-day gifts this time was a red colour heart decorated with lots and lots of glitters was the best from our little valentine -Yep my 28months old toddler came up with this charming heart with the help of his teachers at school, really amazed at those little hands ability:), take a look at it -
Here goes the recipe....


Jus-rol puff pastry sheet – 1
Beaten egg to glaze
Castor sugar for sprinkling
Crème fraiche – 8 to 10 tbspn (you can add according to your choice both crème and strawberries)
Fresh strawberries – 100g
Plain chocolate melted – ½ cup

  1. Preheat oven to 220deg.

  2. Thaw the pastry sheet according to the instructions on the box. Unroll pastry sheet and cut around 8 hearts with a heart shaped cookie cutter. (i used medium sized cutter of a set of 3)

  3. Prick each heart with a fork, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with some sugar.

  4. Place these hearts on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10min until risen and golden brown in colour. Let it cool.

  5. Slice the strawberries and split the heart horizontally using a sharp knife.

  6. Sandwich the heart together with crème fraiche and sliced strawberries. Drizzle the chocolate and dust some castor sugar over the tops of the heart.
Make your day with this gorgeous Valentines Hearts with few fresh strawberries :)!!!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
