Strawberry Heart Pillows
Here is a fun Valentine's Day dessert that we have made in the past. Simple ingredients, easy to make and really yummy. You can't go wrong with a puff pastry, cool whip and chocolate, right? Also...Valentine's Day is only 1 week away!
Makes:16 servings, one heart each
1 frozen puff pastry sheet (1/2 of 17.3-oz. pkg.), thawed
1/3 cup strawberry jam or preserves
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
4 large strawberries, each cut into 4 slices
1 square BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Unfold pastry. Cut into 16 hearts with 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE 20 min. or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
CUT each heart horizontally in half. Spread 1 tsp. of the jam onto bottom half of each heart; top with 1 Tbsp. of the whipped topping and a strawberry slice. Cover with tops of hearts. Drizzle with chocolate. Serve immediately. Or, cover and
refrigerate up to 1 hour.
