Instructions

Cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • With an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar and mix. Add in the vanilla bean paste. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Give it a little whisk then slowly add the flour mixture to the butter. Mix on low, just until combined.
  • Prepare two baking sheets and place to the side.
  • Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out to 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into hearts by using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter.
  • Place the hearts on a cookie sheet and in the fridge for 10 minutes before baking.
  • Bake for 17 minutes, until edges are slightly browned. Cool before frosting.

Filling

  • Place the white chocolate in a bowl and melt in the microwave for a few seconds.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and creamy. Add the raspberry puree and vanilla and continue to beat.
  • Slowly add in the melted chocolate and powdered sugar.
  • Add in the whipping cream to create a lighter consistency. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
  • Place the raspberry filling in a piping bag. Cut off the tip and use to fill the cookies.

Salt

  • Place both ingredients in a small bowl. Using a fork, mix them together until the salt turns pink and there are no clumps. Sprinkle a small amount on each cookie.
