I fully believe when you see great ideas on Pinterest- you should GIVE CREDIT to the websites you originally got said ideas from. There are people behind the pictures, my friends. Give credit where it's due.

Now, that being said, allow me to share the two awesome ladies that inspired these delicious raspberry cream cheese treats! Thus, if my recipe isn't up your alley, check out these talented ladies!
- Jessica @ Novice Chef shared her Nutella Pop Tarts (that gave me the cut out heart idea)
- Sarah @ Cake Student shared her heart Cherry Cheese Pie (that gave me the cream cheese & fruit idea)

With that, here's my creation. Ridiculously easy, ridiculously delicious.
Raspberry Cream Cheese Heart Pie PopTarts!

What you'll need to make it happen:
- Heart cookie cutters
- Premade pie crust
- Cream cheese
-Raspberry preserves (use any kind of fruit!)
- granulated sugar
- egg white
- parchment paper

How to make it happen:
Prep: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and set our you cream cheese to soften 15 minutes before starting

Step 1: Using your big heart cookie cutter, cut out as many big hearts as you can, re-rolling the dough as necessary to get as many as you can. Set aside half of them to be your tart toppings.
Step 2: Spread out a thick layer of cream cheese on half of your hearts, and a thick layer of preserves on top of that. Leave a good half inch around the outside so you can press your top layer firmly without any of your filling spilling out!
Step 3: Cut a small heart in the center of the large hearts you set aside, and before placing it on top of your filled heart, lightly spread the dough so it's just a little bit larger than the bottom heart.
Step 4: Cover your filled heart, using your finger or the edge of a cookie cutter to fully press together the edges. 
Step 5: Cover the top with a quick egg wash and a healthy sprinkle of sugar, and let it bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown

Eat & Enjoy!

Enough photos for you?
I just am trying to portray how delicious they are! It's for your own good, I promise. These hearts are not only good for a very sweet Valentine's breakfast, but also an easy treat to make for your coworkers.
Thanks to Jessica & Sarah for the inspiration!

  16. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    German shepherds also have appeared in tv shows and films because of their intelligence.
    Remember the words "It is actually difficult to show old dogs new tricks. Considering that my prior post a number of of months ago I are already finding a lot more and much more inquiries from quite a number of of my buddys regarding the destination to discover and the ways to find the ideal German Shepherd puppy. For example, German Shepherds are inclined to hip dysplasia along with skeletal disorders.
