You'll need...

For the Biscuits...

200g Light Brown Soft Sugar
200g Unsalted Butter
1tsp Vanilla extract
1 Egg, beaten
400g Plain white flour
Circular cookie cutter
Baking paper

Food colouring, 3 colours
Writing icing
300g Royal icing sugar
Piping bags x3 and 3 small nozzles

To make...
Weight out the sugar and chop the butter into cubes, mix together until creamy with a spoon.
Add the Vanilla Extract and beaten egg, Mix well, then add the flour, stir until it forms a smooth dough.
Wrap the dough in cling-film and chill for 30 mins.
Roll out the Dough to around 5mm thick, Chill again for 15 mins
Preheat the oven to 180oC
Take a baking tray and cut out some baking paper to cover the bottom of the tray
Cut out the dough using a circular cookie cutter into approx. 36 biscuits
Place the biscuits onto the paper, with a 2cm gap around them and bake for 10mins until just turning golden at the edges.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
NB. You may need to bake them in a couple of batches depending on how big your baking tray is.

Make your icing, weight out 100g of icing sugar, add to a small bowl and add 2-3 tablespoons of water. Add your food colouring. (Repeat this for all 3 colours)
Take a piping bag and cut to fit the nozzle. (about ¾ of the way down)
Insert your nozzle inside and push into the hole to fit snuggly.
Holding onto the end of the nozzle, turn the bag inside out and spoon in your icing.
Shake the icing to the bottom of the bag and twist the end.
Squeeze the bag to decorate your biscuits, draw a circle outline to start with and fill with zigzags back and forward until flooded. Shake each biscuit to flatten out the icing and leave to set. Repeat with the other colours.

Chill in the fridge for an hour. Then take the writing icing, draw a heart outline on top of the iced biscuit and add a sweet saying such I've used some of these... True Love, Be mine, How sweet, Yum
