Valentine’s Cookie Recipe

I thought I’d share the recipe I used to make my valentine’s cookies:) Basically they’re just iced biscuits and fully customisable for any occasion! So thanks to Jelly at http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/6754/valentine-cookies.aspx !

Ingredients

  • 250g butter, softened
  • 320g plain flour, sieved
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • icing sugar for finishing touches

Method

  • Preheat oven to 170 C
  • Mix butter with a mixer until light

  • Add the flour, icing sugar, milk and vanilla extract ( I only mixed it a little with the mixer to begin with)

  • Then knead the mixture into a velvety dough…

 

  • Separate the dough into two halves and roll out to a 6mm thickness, using as little extra flour as possible!

  • Cut out hearts or whatever shape you choose using a cookie cutter, or glass, or mug or whatever you want!

Cut Shapes

  • Place onto a lightly greased baking tray or one lined with baking paper and bake for around 12 minutes

  •  The cookies will be almost white when baked. Unfortunately I can never adhere to this rule and always end up with slightly burnt cookies!

Bake the Cookies

  • Leave to cool before icing, or else sprinkle them with some icing sugar. I did a mixture 🙂

Iced Cookies!

And there you have it! I could do with practising my icing skills more!
