Heart Melting Moments

IMG_4104So Valentines Day was last Friday and as you can probably guess my valentine were these beauties to the right >>>>>>>>

These scrumptious biscuits sooth the soul. So forget about a boyfriend! There simple, delicate and they won’t break your’e heart…they’ll melt it. ♡ ♥

This recipe is also a family classic. Grandma’s been baking these all her life and they’ve never failed from perfection. 

Start by preheating the oven to 180 degrees and line two large baking trays with baking paper.

Now for the dough…

 ʕ •́؈•̀) Simply comine butter, flour, sugar and vanilla essence. Mix the ingredients with an electric beater until you have a nice doughy consistency.

Time to get your hands dirty! Sprinkle plain flour on your bench (so the dough doesn’t stick). Then with a rolling pin, flatten your dough to an even 1cm thickness. Take out your favourite heart shaped 

cookie cutters and start placing your heart shaped dough on your

 baking tray. Then place in the oven.

Whilst the moments are are cooking start on the pink buttercream. Simply beat together butter, milk and vanilla extract, and gradually add the icing sugar until smooth. Don’t forget to add the pink food colouring for the love.

Pull the biscuits out of the oven after 20 minutes and let them cool. 

Now were going to be cupids and stick two heart biscuits together with the pink buttercream until we make a love sandwich.

For some added pizazz I added decorative chocolate hearts which were a big hit!
