ICED HEART COOKIES

Recipe Courtesy - @SupremeFlour

INGREDIENTS
  • 200 g / ⅓ cups Cake Wheat Flour, plus extra to dust
  • 100 g Castor sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 g Unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 Medium egg
  • 5 ml / 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Icing:
  • 1 Egg white
  • 500 g Icing sugar


RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
Put the flour, salt, castor sugar, butter, egg and vanilla into a food processor; pulse until mixture comes together (if you don’t have a processor, rub butter into dry ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, then stir in the egg and vanilla using a blunt-ended cutlery knife). Tip onto a work surface and bring dough together into a disc, then wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Lightly flour a work surface, then roll out the dough until 5 mm thick. The thickness will determine how many cookies you will get from the dough.

Stamp out hearts, rerolling trimmings as needed. Put hearts on a greased baking tray and bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the icing: Place egg white in a large bowl, slowly sieve icing sugar into the bowl, beating well in between. Whip until icing is thick and creamy. When it is ready it will be glossy and white.

Working quickly, decorate your cookies by spreading the icing over the cookies or drizzling it over the top. Place on a rack to set.


Continue icing the remaining biscuits. You might need to slightly adjust the consistency of the icing with water as you go. Allow to set before serving.
