Valentines Love Hearts

love hearts for valentines

125g/4oz butter

60g/2oz caster sugar

185g/6oz plain flour

½ tsp ground ginger

125g/4oz best dark chocolate

125g/4oz white chocolate

 

  • Put the chocolates into separate bowls on to the back of the AGA to melt
  • Soften the butter…again leave on the AGA for a while
  • Beat together the butter and sugar and then stir in the flour and ginger until it forms a smooth paste
  • Flour your work surface and gently roll out the paste until ½ cm thick (you can make them thicker if you want less biscuits and more chunky…bake them a little longer in this case)
  • Using a heart shaped cutter cut out as many biscuits as you can, reform and roll out again until you have used all paste
  • On a large baking sheet covered in bake-o-glide place your hearts and bake in the baking oven for 12- 15 minutes. 2 oven Aga on the lowest set of runners with cold plain shelf above. Conventional oven 190C until pale golden brown
  • Remove and allow to cool completely
  • Clean bake-o-glide and re use it on the baking tray…this time it needs to go in the fridge
  • Dip the bottom half of cooled biscuits in the melted dark chocolate and lay flat on the bake-o-glide. Pop into fridge and leave until set hard.
  • Repeat the process with the melted white chocolate…you could do two separate halves or overlapping…experiment and have fun.
  • Wrap up with tender love and give to your beloved (or eat the lot yourself in front of a soppy film.)
