For Valentines Day
Some honey hearts
Even the coffee shop is feeling the love.
250 g butter, soft
1/2 cup raw sugar / caster sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup SR flour
2 cups plain flour or 1 cup wholemeal plain and 1 cup plain
Cream butter and sugar, beat in the honey.
Stir in the flour and keep working until you have soft dough.
Divide dough into two balls and place each ball between two sheets of baking paper. Rroll out to 4 mm thickness.
Place dough on a tray and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Remove dough from the fridge approximately 10 -20 minutes and allow the dough to soften enough so that it can be to cut with a cookie cutter.
Cut out shapes and place on a tray lined with baking paper.
Bake at 160 deg C until golden brown. Place cookies on a cooling rack to completely cool.
Decorate with a dust of icing sugar or a thin layer of icing.
