Valentine Cookies….

Say it with cookies, not just flowers πŸ™‚

Love is in the air or soon will be!!

With only a month  left until Valentines day I have this lovely recipe to share with you from Jordans….

Makes 12
Prep time 15 mins

Cook time 10 -12 mins

Ingredients:

  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 medium egg
  • 100g Jordans Super Berry Muesli

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 150g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • Flour, for rolling


For the icing:

  • 1 sachet dried egg white
  • 500g icing sugar, sifted
  • Food colours, of your choice


Method:

  1. Mix together the melted butter and egg. 
  2. Then stir in the muesli, flour, bicarbonate of soda, sugar and milk. 
  3. Use your hands to make the mixture into a dough. 
  4. Grease and flour a baking sheet.
  5. Use a bit of flour to roll out the dough, or if you prefer, roll the dough out between two sheets of baking parchment. 
  6. Flour the cutters and cut out the letters. 
  7. For the β€˜O’, substitute a round cutter and a very small heart cutter, from a set.
  8. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 180Β°c/ fan 170Β°c/ Gas Mark 5. 
  10. Bake the biscuits for 10 – 12 minutes. 
  11. Transfer to a rack to cool. 

  12.  For the icing, mix together the icing sugar and egg white. 
  13. Divide this up into 3 bowls, and colour each bowl with your chosen colours. 
  14. Spoon the icing into your icing bags, and use straightaway or store until ready to use.
  15. When the biscuits are cool, spread over the base colour. 
  16. Allow this to dry for 10 minutes, before piping on top of it, otherwise the icing will bleed into each other. 
  17. Decorate with spots, stripes, squiggles or any other pattern.

    Yum! And yours are so cute! Love the colors. Thanks for linking it to the Valentine Craft Linky! Blog looks cute. Did you darken your hair? Or is that just because of the Black & white photo?
