I am aware this Valentine’s Day biscuit recipe is coming at quite a late date but as it is half term my mummy readers may wish to make these biscuits today with their children. My non-mummy readers may wish to make these yummy biscuits tonight as they only take 20 minutes from to make from start to finish.
This biscuit recipe is a family hand me down from my auntie and is incredibly quick and easy biscuit recipe to use with children because it is quick and easy and they can do everything themselves, with a little supervision. Best of all they taste delicious.
I have added a a teaspoon of cinnamon because I adore the flavour (Christmas throwback). Other ideas would be to add the zest of an orange to the recipe. One of my favourite icing tips are to add the juice of a lemon to your icing sugar instead of water to give each bite a zesty tang.
1 oz soft dark brown sugar
2 oz butter
3 oz flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Icing sugar and food colouring.

•Lightly dust your surface with flour and roll out your dough roughly £1 coin thick
•Cut out your desired shapes and place on your prepared baking sheet
