I covered the top of the cookie
cutter in foil to keep crumbs out.
5. Warm jam in the microwave until loosened. Pour over cream cheese layer. Let cool until jam hardens.

6. Cover a metal heart-shaped cookie cutter in foil and lightly place in the center of the cream cheese layer. Sprinkle reserved crumb topping and pine nuts over all areas outside of the heart.

7. Bake for 45-55 mins. Carefully remove foil from heart-shaped cookie cutter and add candy topping. Carefully remove heart-shaped cookie cutter and serve.

Serves: 6-9
