10 Valentine’s Day baking ideas

These classic iced biscuits are quick and easy to make, and sure to brighten up your day – or put a smile on the face of someone you love.

Many of us will have fond memories of making cookie cutter biscuits as a child, and revisiting these memories to make some Valentine’s Day-inspired delights can be a fun and nostalgic way to spend an afternoon.

Before you get started, it’s worth investing in some heart-shaped cookie cutters (or another shape of your choosing if hearts aren’t your thing). You can pick these up for a few pounds on Amazon. Or, if you’re feeling extra creative, you could try cutting your shapes by hand, or making your own cutters out of tin foil – you can find out how to do this here.

The next part is as simple as making a cookie dough from flour, sugar, milk, and eggs, cutting them to shape, baking them in the oven, and choosing how you want to finish them – there are endless colours, flavours, and toppings you could choose from.

You could try this recipe from Delish, which will show you how to make classic cookies with pink and red buttercream icing, and sprinkles. Or, you might like this recipe from The Happy Foodie, if you want to make crisp lemon heart-shaped cookies, with a layer of bright pink icing, dotted with tiny white hearts.

If pink icing isn’t for you, then the video below will also show you how to make some irresistible-looking Italian butter cookies, dipped in chocolate!
