Valentine Cookies

Happy Valentines Day! Make these lovely little cookie to sweeten up you day!
 
To make these delicious cookies you will need...
140g Icing Sugar
250g Butter
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
375g Flour

First pre-heat the oven to 190°C. Next mix the icing sugar, butter, egg yolk and vanilla extract in a bowl until it is nice and creamy. Then add a little bit of flour at a time so it goes into a dough consistency. Wrap the dough in cling film and pop it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Once it is out of the fridge sprinkle some flour over a worktop and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Using either a normal round or heart shaped cookie cutter, cut them into shapes. Lay them on a lined baking tray and pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes. When they are out of the oven put them on a cooling tray and start making the icing.

For the icing...
225g Icing Sugar
1 Egg White
Cold Water
Pink or Red Food Colouring
Mix the icing sugar and the egg white together, if it is a little stiff put in a splash of water. Then add a drop of food colouring. Next scoop it into a piping bag and ice a little heart shape. If you want to add any other decoration go ahead, but I think they still look nice plain.
And voila some gorgeous valentine cookies!
