Cherry shortbread cookies, cut with a heart shape and “viva el amor”
Very easy to make and very easy to eat too, so perfect for some “love” handles. 😂 I will stop now!!
You will need:
100g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
50g ground almonds
250g pack cold vegan butter, cut into cubes
50g glacé cherries, finely chopped
½ tsp almond extract
8 tbsp cherry jam, sieved
Mix all the ingredients together but the jam, roll and cut the shape you like.
Bake cookies for about 8/10minutes, make an indentation with a bottle top or your thumb for a different look, add the sieved jam and bake for an extra 2 minutes. Cool in a rack and sprinkle with icing sugar.
Although the recipe I followed claims you will make 14/16 depending on size I have ended up with a few more, even a broken heart or two
So to stop us eating them all we are going to make a few people happy tomorrow
Love to all my family and friends for always being there, they are all my Valentines. I ❤️you all!!!!
