After making my pink pinwheel biscuits last week, I’ve been wanting to try more girly biscuit recipes. So this week I used the same recipe to create something a little different but just as pretty. These pretty two colour heart biscuits are really easy to make and look absolutely adorable. They’re perfect for giving as a gift or taking for a tea drinking session and gossip with friends (my favourite thing to do with my besties)
3 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup of butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 beaten egg (large)
1 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp Gel food colouring (I used Wilton in Rose and Violet, which you can buy from Hobbycraft, you will need a professional colouring to get the strong shade I achieved. The supermarket ones don’t come out this dark)
How to Make:
Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and place to one side.
Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
Add the egg and milk to the mix and stir until combined.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until they form a stiff dough.
Divide the mixture into three and add food colouring to two of the sections, mix the dough until the colour is fully combined.
Place the dough in the fridge for half an hour.
Roll out the plain dough and use a large cutter to cut out your biscuits. Use a smaller cutter to make a heart shaped hole in the middle of each biscuit.
Roll out your coloured dough and cut out some hearts using the smaller cutter.
Place the coloured hearts in the middle of the larger cookie and gently press the pieces together.
Bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Do not over cook, even if the biscuit feel soft they will harden as they cool. Place on a wire rack to cool.
Let me know if you give these a try!
