Valentine's Day Treats

We all are in the phase of preparing for Valentines Day!

Whether you celebrate it, or not, nothing feels better than to show your loved one that he's loved!

This is a recipe that my grandma had, a recipe that doesn't have a name. Um? Well, we now call it, Grandma's ;)

(If you happen to know when these would be called, plz let me know!) ;)

These are the engridients that you will need:
3 1/2 cups flour
200 grams margarine (2 small pkgs)
1 cup sugar
1 cup of jam (preserves)
2 eggs
1 tsp soda (w/vinagar)
1 tblsp corn starch
pinch of salt
powdered sugar

Beat the eggs, mix in sugar

 Melt the margarine, mix it in with sugar and eggs.

Pour the vinegar over soda and let sizzle for a few seconds (kinda like a science project ;) 
and pour into the batter

Add 3 CUPS (save the 1/2) flour

Grease a 9x11 pan (i forgot to line mine, you could use waxpaper or foil :) So much easier to clean!

 Spread HALF the batter in a 9"x11" pan.

Sprinkle the corn starch, spread around

 Add the jam, make sure it's the thicker kind


 Add 1/2 cup of flour into the rest of the batter, mix.

It should come out like this:

 Using a grater, grate the rest of the batter on top. Make sure it's even :)

Put into a heated over, 425 F for about 25-30 min. Middle rack. Until golden brown.

 Ta-da! (I kinda burned it....uhg, it still came out delish ;)

Using cookie cutter, make hearts!
Sprinkle with some powdered sugar :)

Hope you try it and enjoy it!
It's much easier than it seems.
I think I made it look harder than it really is.
It's super fast and doesn't take much ingridients.

This is my first recipe that I'm sharing online, so please, bear with me, I'm not the best explainer. lol

Enjoy and happy early Valentine's Day!
