Valentine’s Day CookiesIMG_7627

As a treat to our guests we are leaving these delicious amenities in all our guest bedrooms to help celebrate St Valentine’s Day. They are such a tasty treat and are made from only three ingredients, four if you dip them in chocolate. Perfect to share with the one that you love.

Ingredients
50g sugar
100g butter
150g plain flour

To decorate;

50g of dark chocolate

Method
Preheat the oven to 180c and grease a baking sheet with butter.
Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the sugar and bring the mixture together to form a very stiff dough.
Roll out the dough onto a lightly dusted surface until the mixture is 1/4 inch thick.
Use a love heart shaped cutter or whatever cutter you have to hand to cut. Lift carefully onto the greased baking sheet.
Bake for approximately 8 minutes or until the cookies are golden.
Allow to cool fully on a wire rack before decorating or simply eat them!

Melt the 50g of dark chocolate in a bowl over some boiling water and once melted dip in each cookie so that half of the heart is coated.
