These are all the ingredients that you need.

1. Preheat the oven to 325 °F (165 °C).

2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

3. In a bowl, combine the butter and 2/3 cup (80 grams) sugar.

7. Shape the dough into a ball.

8. On a rather generously floured work surface, roll out the dough into about 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness.

9. You will need two sizes of heart-shaped cookie cutters now (I used a 2 1/4-inch = 6 cm one and 1 1/4-inch = 3 cm one). Using the bigger cutter, cut out cookies. Then use a smaller heart cutter to cut a window out of half of the cookies.

10. With a spatula, carefully transfer the cookies to the prepared baking sheets.

11. Repeat with the remaining dough. Gather scraps and roll out again to make more cookies.

12. Bake cookies in batches until the edges of cookies are just golden, about 13 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer onto plates to cool completely.

13. Spread 3/4 tsp jam over flat side of each cookie that doesn’t have a window. Top with the remaining cookies (dust them with confectioners sugar before), flat side down, so that jam shows through windows.

    So beautiful! I have cookie envy/admiration – I rarely get cut-out cookies to turn out so neatly. These are picture perfect 🙂

    The cookies look lovely. Surely trying this one out. Can these be made without the egg yolk?
