if you over knead.

the sheet. 
Cut the disk into eighths and separate, or into fourths and
shape the fourths into heart shapes. Half cut the hearts
from point to dip in heart to be broken apart when

eight wedges and leave whole.

Brush the tops of whatever shape you made with
cream, milk or egg wash.

Press the streusel onto the top.

Bake much longer and check more carefully as they
are larger like the heart or disk.
