I love you more than....

I love you more than....Heart Biscuits 

These are so sweet and you can use your imagination when it comes to the details. They would be a great unique gift for any partner.


650g Plain Flour
1 tsp. baking powder
250g Butter
260g Caster Sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract or chosen flavouring
1/2 tsp. salt
you will need a heart shaped cookie cutter and coloured icing of your choice.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients and add to butter mixture a little at a time.
  • There is a lot of flour in this recipe so it is important to take your time to ensure all of the flour is absorbed. Keep working the dough until it comes together with no crumbs.
  • Roll the dough into flat slabs cover and place in the fridge to chill for 30 mins.
  • Pre heat the oven to 180c Gas Mark 4.
When your oven has reached temperature roll dough to approx. 1cm thick and using your cookie cutter, cut to shape. Using a non-stick baking tray, bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges of your cookies begin to turn brown. Leave to cool on a cooling rack before decorating.
