Sweet Heart How To.

 For Christmas, My lovely Sister spoiled me with a big bag of baking bits and bobs  (alliteration win). As she's coming back to stay for a week, I thought I better whip her up some sweet treats. 

I used a really simple recipe for shortbread, It's basically foolproof. 


4oz Butter
4oz Sugar 
6oz Plain Flour 

What To Do: 

Step 1: Cream your butter and sugar together until they form a paste.
Step 2: Sieve your flour into and mix into a breadcrumb consistency. 
Step 3: Get your hands dirty, form into a ball! (Add a tiny bit of milk if you think it's a little dry).
Step 4: Flour a surface, and roll out to a thickness of about 1cm. Use whichever cutter you like (but we all know hearts are the cutest).
Step 5: Leave to chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Step 6: Bake for 15-20 minutes at 190C (BUT KEEP AN EYE ON THEM), I just caught mine in time...some are already a little too golden brown! 
Step 7: Leave to cool, ice if you want to or eat plain. 

I decided on pink icing, some in lines, others I went to town with some sprinkles too (it might have also been to cover the darker ones up...) 

I recalled Milly icing her very own heart biscuits like this, so I took some "inspiration".

These really are the easiest biscuits to whip up if you fancy something sweet in a hurry, you'll probably already have everything in your kitchen too. 

Now, the biggest challenge is going to be leaving them all for Hannah...

Normal beauty service will resume tomorrow.
