Will You Be My Valentine?

Happy Valentines Day Lovers!

Hope you all have a fantastic day, whatever you do! My night will consist of a Chinese takeaway, some wine & feasting on the biscuits i made for the other half this afternoon! 

I followed the gorgeous Milly's recipe for her gorgeous sweetheart biscuits which can be found here - She has been a great help and has been answering my questions all afternoon so thank you so much for your help Milly! I doubled the ingredients because i had a feeling that my Mum, Brother & Sister would all want in on the biscuit action! 

I do love cooking and baking but by no means am i any good at it and as this was my first time making the biscuits i am quite happy with the outcome, although they are not a patch on Milly's fine baking skills! 

Unfortunately i do not have any heart shaped cutters (Need to add them to the shopping list!) so  i had to settle for round shaped biscuits instead! 

I decorated with pink icing sugar (& a spoon - i do really need to invest in a piping bag!) and different goodies to decorate including pink glitter, pink & white sugar bobbles and also multi coloured stars :) 

As i said i doubled the ingredients and turned out with a whopping 38 biscuits! The family will be pleased! I have been slaving away in the kitchen for the best part of all day!

Heres the outcome...




Far from perfect but they do taste amazing! 

What are you doing this Valentines?

Hope you all have a lovely day
