Ingredients

One of my favorite things about this recipe is how simple it is! You need less than five ingredients:

  1. Pie Dough (one pie dough package will yield about 7-8 love notes, depending on size.)
  2. Approximately 1 tablespoon jam, jelly, or preserves per envelope. You can use any flavor, such as strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, or grape.
  3. One egg (for egg wash)
  4. Approximately two tablespoons powdered sugar (also called Confectioner’s sugar)
  5. Optional Ingredients: Valentine’s Day sprinkles, any color icing

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut out small diamond shapes (about 4 inches tall) from the pie dough.
  3. Cut out small heart shapes using a small heart cookie cutter and set aside. If you don’t have one, you can also freehand or create your own with a piece of paper. Just place the heart cut-out on top of the dough and cut around it.
  4. In the center of the diamond, spoon 1-2 tablespoons of jam, jelly, or preserves.
  5. Fold the two side corners into the center of the diamond, over the jam.
  6. Fold the bottom corner up over the two side corners and place the heart cut-out on top. (Leave the top corner open. Some jam/jelly/preserves will be visible.)
  7. Crack an egg into a bowl and stir with a fork or whisk. Brush egg wash on top of envelopes and place in oven.
  8. Bake until golden brown (approximately 10 minutes) and sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or sprinkles.

Optional Tip: If you’d like to add color to your pie dough love notes, add any color frosting or icing to the envelope seams or the cut-out heart.

Substitutions:

For a savory option, you can make pizza envelopes! Just swap out:

  • Pizza dough instead of pie dough
  • Marinara sauce instead of jam
  • Add some mozzarella cheese
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, basil, or Italian seasoning instead of powdered sugar after baking

Perfect Presentation Platters

These pie dough love notes don’t need a fancy platter to be adorable! Here are some of my favorite options:

Valentine’s Day Plates: I used this rectangular dish with hearts and the individual serving plates are from Hobby Lobby! This heart-shaped pink platter is also a great find, as well as these pink scalloped dessert plates. (Both from Target.) Williams-Sonoma also has a beautiful watercolor heart platter made from stoneware.

White Serving Platters: I use this set of two white porcelain platters frequently, or you could get so much use out of this large white porcelain platter from Walmart.

Marble Trays: This gold-rimmed marble tray from World Market or this similar style from JC Penney are lovely! I also love this white marble pastry board and this marble tray from Walmart for a great price.

Wood Serving Boards: I use these for anything and everything, from desserts to charcuterie boards. Antique Farmhouse has this amazing set of three in various shapes and sizes. Target also has a huge selection, like a round paddle board, this rectangular distressed board, or this raised wooden tray.

Trays: I always try to select products that are practical and can be used again and again. This gold hammered serving tray is gorgeous and could be used for many other occasions, as well as this gray oval-shaped soapstone tray from Target.

Can I Make These Ahead of Time?

Yes! I’d recommend baking them the same day as prepping so they don’t get too soggy from the egg wash, or you can wait to apply the egg wash until you are ready to bake. Store in the refrigerator after prepping.

Storing Leftover Pie Dough Love Notes

Store any leftovers in a Ziploc bag or Tupperware container in the refrigerator, where they should stay fresh for 3-5 days. Reheat in the microwave at 10-15 second intervals.
