This recipe is for all you romantics out there. I personally have never been one to celebrate Valentine’s Day (San Valentino), and I am not just saying that because I find myself loveless today (in the sense that there is no man). Trust me I have had my fair share of “ti voglio bene”, “ti amo”, “sto innamorato” (all different forms of saying I love you)- all superficial and nothing worth mentioning here. So I find myself sharing my day with my one true love, the kitchen! These biscuits will be shared with my friends probably over a coffee! Whether you choose to cook these for your Husband, boyfriend, Wife, girlfriend, lover, mistress, family or friends- I am sure they will be impressed. Also, you will be impressed with how simple they are to make- I whipped them up within half and hour. Not only are they simple but they are crispy good with a zesty zing! Wrapped them in a cute box with some ribbon as the perfect sweet gift for your someone special. Happy Saint Valentine’s Day!!

How to make:
1: Sift the flour into a large bowl. Use your finger tips to rub in the room-temperature butter into the flour to resemble breadcrumbs.
2: Add the remaining ingredients and combine all together. Once combined, transfer to a lightly floured bench and knead lightly to form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
3: Remove sections of the dough and roll on a well floured surface. Use a love-heart cutter (or desired shape), then place shapes on a oven tray lined with baking paper.
4: Place in a pre-heated oven and bake at 180 degrees for roughly 10 minuets.
