Organic sugar heart shape biscuits for Valentines Day

This lovely cookie recipe comes from our friends at Chelsea, just in time for Valentines Day. Decorate as simply or elaborately as you like.


2 cups plain flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
125g butter 
½ cup Chelsea Organic Sugar 
¼ tsp grated lemon rind 
1 egg Icing 
2 cups Chelsea Icing sugar  
¼ tsp butter, softened 
2 tbsp boiling water 
¼ tsp vanilla essence 
Red food colouring

Method Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles fine bread-crumbs. Add Chelsea organic Sugar, and lemon rind.  Lightly beat egg in a separate bowl. Add to dry ingredients, mixing to form a stiff dough. Turn doughout onto a lightly floured board. Roll out to 4mm thickness. Cut out heart shapes using different sized heart cutters then place biscuits on a greased or lined baking tray. Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Transfer biscuits on to a wire rack and allow to cool. 

Icing Sift Chelsea icing sugar into a bowl. Add butteand sufficient boiling water to mix to a spreadable consistency. For different icing colours, set aside some white icing, then add one drop at a time of red colouring to remaining icing to get shades of pink to bright red. Ice the biscuits and decorate as desired
