I know this post is a little late but I was busy celebrating 🙂
I love Valentine’s Day – some people may call it an artificial ‘Hallmark’ holiday but for me it’s a perfect excuse to celebrate all the love in my life, buy and/or make a cutesy gift for my husband, wear red heels to work, go out to a nice dinner and share a decadent dessert, go for a romantic weekend away… (and yes I did all those things this year!) and of course bake and decorate Valentine’s Day themed treats.
Why am I referring to these as ‘traditional’ you might ask? Well they’re a bit of a tradition in my family. Ever since I was little my Mum made these every Christmas and my sister and I would cut out all the different shapes with the cookie cutters, which my mum inherited from her parents, who used to make these at Christmas as well. Just the smell of these biscuits in the oven immediately makes me think of Christmas! The old cookie cutters are still my absolute favourite ones too. Even though both Mum and I have bought other newer ones since, we still go back to the old ones at Christmas.
So it’s quite a special recipe that I’ll be sharing with you today 🙂
