Ingredients
  • 115g butter
  • 55g caster sugar
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour
  • 25g cornflour
  • 250g Royal Icing Sugar

Method
  • Mix the butter, caster sugar and vanilla extract until just evenly mixed. Stir in the flour and cornflour. Wrap in cling film and chill for about 30 minutes.

  • Roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin and cut out different sizes of heart shapes with cutters – 6cm, 5cm and 4cm wide at the widest point. Bake at 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 for 10 minutes. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

  • Make the icing sugar with 4 tbsp water. Divide into small bowls to add pink and red food colouring before decorating the biscuits.
