Valentine's Day Cookies

Homemade cookies are the cutest way to show your love to someone special this Valentine's Day . If you don't have a Valentine, then make them for your Mum or granny!  

This dough comes together in about 10 minutes with prep time about 1 hour and it  makes quite enough depending on the size of your cookie cutter + you can always freeze the other half if you have too much.

Cookies You will need:

125 g Butter

3/4 cup caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg yolk

2 cups plain flour

Royal Icing You will need:

2 cups pure icing sugar

1 egg white

1 tsp lemon juice 

(add food colour optional)

For the cookies- 

cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the egg and vanilla and flour mix in well until it forms a dough, wrap in plastic wrap for about 30 min to chill.

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out to about 1/2cm thick and using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut out as many cookies as you like and lay on a baking tray with baking paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes until they stat to go golden on the top, allow to cool before transferring on a cooling rack.

For the Icing:

Whisk the egg white and lemon juice before adding to the icing sugar- mix until smooth then spread or pipe on your cookies and decorate however you like and have some fun customizing these cookies with colours and sprinkles!

Store in an airtight container for 1 week.

Happy Valentine's Day! x
