Talk about total sweetness! Rebecca and Rosie of Honeywell Bakes are here with a lovely rose and vanilla heart cookie recipe.

Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe |


Preheat oven to 335F/170C. Cream butter and sugar, then add vanilla and rose water, mix well. Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe |

Add pink food colouring, a few drops at a time, until desired colour is reached – they will darken a little whilst baking. Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe | Work in flour and cornflour slowly until well combined.

Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe | Roll out dough and rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe | Cut out hearts, and reroll the leftover dough until you have used it all. Rose and Vanilla Hearts Recipe | Bake for 35 minutes, keeping an eye on your biscuits (cookies), and turning them halfway through to ensure that they stay nice and pink and don’t over-brown.

Allow to cool completely.

Meanwhile melt the white chocolate in a bowl by microwaving on medium heat for one minute at a time.

Stir the chocolate in between and ensure it doesn’t overheat and burn.

Half dip your heart biscuits (cookies) in the white chocolate and leave to set on a cooling rack.
