Stained Glass Window Biscuits for Valentine

Stained Glass Window Biscuits for Valentine

By 02/02/2012

I have seen these biscuits around a few times and wanted to have a go to see whether they were easy to make and how they would turn out.With Valentine approaching I decided to shape them into a heart.

Very easy to make a very pretty indeed, nice to decorate your house, the sort of thing children would love to make and to eat!

  • Prep Time : 40 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10-12 minutes



Incorporate the butter and the flour together. Add the sugar, eggs, lemon zest and vanilla and make it into a ball. Wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.
Sorting them by colour, put the sweeties in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

With the rolling pin roll the pastry flat and with a pastry cutter shape them into a heart, then with a smaller cutter make a hole in the middle;

Lay the hearts on a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and fill the holes with the crushed sweeties. You can pierce them with a straw to hang them up if you wish.

Cook them at 180C for 10-12 minutes until they turn slightly golden but make sure you don't over cook them.
Wait for them to cool down before removing them from the baking tray.
