Sugar Cookies Hearts

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
candy sprinkles or red colored sugar
your favorite jam

Beat together butter and sugar on medium speed. Add egg, sugar, milk and vanilla and mix well. Add dry ingredients 1 cup at a time, mixing well and scraping bowl. Chill for about 1 hour or until dough is firm.

Lightly flour counter top and roll out the dough so it is about 1/8 of an inch thick. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make cookies.

Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375F degrees for 6-8 minutes.

Let cookies cool on racks. Spread jam on half of the cookies, and top with another cookie for a sweet sandwich. Enjoy!
