Here’s a lovely recipe for delicious biscuits – with a Valentine’s Day theme – a perfect way to keep little ones busy on a rainy afternoon…
Very easy to make: Prep time approx. 25 mins, Cooking time 10 mins
Makes approx. 16 biscuits
250g butter softened
320g sieved plain flour
125g sieved icing sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas mark 3.
Mix butter until light, add remaining ingredients.
Knead until velvety. Roll one-half of the dough at a time to about 6mm thickness using the smallest amount of flour possible.
Cut out and bake on a lightly greased baking tray for 10 minutes. Cookies will be almost white when cooked.
We split the dough and added some Red food colouring and mixed it in until it was an even colour so we could have half and half.
Have fun decorating them!
A big thank you to Jo and budding little chef Emily for the recipe and photos.
