Vanilla Valentine's Cookies

Wither you are making a sweet treat for or with your loved ones, this vanilla sprinkle cookies will take you know time at all to make, so that you can spend quality time with the one you love.

If you are travelling on a romantic getaway, or spending a cosy night home, these cookies will add an extra sweetener to whatever you have planned and score you extra brownie well sweet vanilla cookie points with that someone special.

100g/3½oz unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
100g/3½oz caster sugar
1 medium free-range egg, lightly beaten
275g/10oz plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract

To decorate
400g/14oz icing sugar
3-4 tbsp water
100 & 1000's sprinkles

1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until combined.

3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, until well combined.

4. Stir in the flour until the mixture comes together as a dough.

5. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1cm/½in.

6. Using heart cookie cutters, cut biscuits out of the dough and place onto the baking tray.

7. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to harden for 5 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.

8. For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to create a smooth mixture. 

9. Spread the icing onto the cookies using a teaspoon, in a heart shape smaller than the cookies, sprinkle your 100 & 1000s over the icing  set aside until the icing and sprinkles harden.

I am actually really starting to enjoy this  baking adventure, even better when I've Leanora to help me, great activity for the whole family or very relaxing and therapeutic on your own.
