I have a whole bunch of Cookie Cutters and it's a lot of fun to make cookies that suit a particular occasion like these Love Hearts, perfect for Valentines Day!
I always use Nigella's Cut Out Cookie recipe, it's easy and works perfectly every time:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Cream 6 tablespoons of soft butter with half a cup of Caster Sugar, beat in 1 egg and half a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract. Add a cup and a half of flour and half a teaspoon baking powder, shape into a fat disk, wrap in cling wrap and let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Roll the dough out and cut into shapes, place the cookies a little apart on cookie sheets lined with baking paper.
Bake for about 10 minutes; swapping trays after about 5 minutes. When they're ready they wil be golden around the edges; they'll be soft still in the middle, but will harden as they cool, then they are ready to ice!
