Cherry Heart Tarts

We’re so excited to introduce our limited edition Potter’s Pastries Collection of Soy Glass Candles & Room Sprays. They are here for a limited time and smell as delicious as freshly baked pastries. To celebrate this collection Molly and the team at Monica Potter Home did some DIYs to match our scrumptious new scents! Here’s a fun and easy recipe for Molly’s favorite Cherry Heart Tarts. Shop our Cherry Tart Candle & Cherry Tart Room Spray!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 box of pie crust
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • Cherry jam
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • Heart cookie cutter
  • Fork
  • Rolling pin

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While your oven is heating, sprinkle a little flour on your surface and roll out your dough until its about ¼ inch thick. Using your heart cookie cutter, begin cutting out hearts from the dough. Gather the scraps and roll out again to get as many hearts as possible.

You want to divide the hearts out equally to ensure that you have a top and bottom for your tarts. On the bottom heart, place a spoonful of cherry jam into the middle. You want to make sure that the edges stay clean. Once the jam is in place, carefully lay the top heart over the jam and bottom heart. With a fork, crimp the edges of the tart, sealing the hearts together.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and move the hearts onto the paper. With a pastry brush, carefully brush the tarts with the beaten egg and sprinkle the tops with sugar.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
