Place the hearts on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Press one popsicle stick onto the bottom center of each heart. Place 1 teaspoon of raspberry jam in the center of each heart.

3. Place 1 egg in a small bowl and whisk. Brush the edges of the hearts on the cookie sheet. Roll out the remaining dough and cut out 12 more hearts. Place the hearts on top of the filled circles and gently press the edges together.

4. Using a fork, crimp the edges together. Lightly brush the top of the tarts with the remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar. Bake for 22-24 minutes, or until golden brown.

5. Let the tarts cool. Then, pop them in goodie bags and tie with baker鈥檚 twine. Enjoy!
