10. While your cookies are in the oven, heat the jam in a saucepan over medium heat
until it reduces and becomes thick (about 7 minutes) and allow it to cool off
11. When the cookies are done and golden brown, take them out of the oven and allow them to cool
12. Assemble them by putting a dollop of jam on the whole rounds and then place the heart cut out rounds on top
