Stained Glass Sugarcookies

Valentine's Day sugar cookie recipe

This week I thought we would make some biscuits using one of our favourite Christmas recipes. We made stained glass cookies, although I didn’t write it up as I ran out of time. They were so cute though and I liked the dough recipe we used which didn’t need chilling in the fridge. So it seemed perfect to use for Valentine’s cookies.

Valentine's Day sugar cookie recipe

Ingredients

50 g (2oz) sugar

50g (20z) butter

1/2 egg

115g (4.5 oz) plain flour

15g (0.5oz) cornflour (cornstarch)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

red boiled sweets

Method

Cream the sugar and butter.

Beat the egg into a separate bowl. Gradually mix half  in with the butter and sugar.

Sift the flour and cornflour in to the mixture and beat together with the vanilla essence.

Form  into a dough and roll out until 5mm (1/4 inch) thick.

Use a large cutter to cut into heart shapes using a small heart cutter in the middle.

Put the boiled sweets into a bag and beat into fine crumbs*. Put into the middle of the heart.

Use a drinking straw to make small circles so the biscuits can be hung up.

Bake for about 20 minutes at 180 C, 350 F, gas mark 4

 

You can decorate with white icing if you wish – although they look lovely plain.

Hang with ribbon.

*You can use a solid sweet which did work at Christmas for me but when I tried this time leaked over the side – I think because my heart shaped cutter for the centre was too small.
