These yummy cookies make the perfect gift for that someone special on Valentine's day (or any day!)

140g caster sugar

3 large tablespoons of cocoa (Dutch is best)


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius.
1. Cream the butter and the sugar in a large bowl.
2. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
3. Sift the flours and cocoa and stir into mixture.
4. Knead the mixture in the bowl until well combined.
5. Lightly flour a board and roll out the cookie dough.
6. Use a heart shape cutter to cut out the cookies and place on a baking tray with baking paper.
7. Bake for about 15 minutes.
8. Allow to cool before icing as desired.
Makes about 24 cookies.


I've also made these iced with chocolate butter icing and decorated with either chocolate sprinkles or hundreds and thousands.
