Heart shaped stained glass biscuits

Ingredients
1 clementine
100g unsalted butter
180g plain flour
50g golden caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon milk
12 red boiled sweets

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Finely grate the clementine zest.
  • Place the butter, flour, sugar, clementine zest and cinnamon into a mixing bowl and use your fingers to rub together until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add the milk to the mixture and combine together to make a soft dough.
  • Wrap the dough in clingfilm and place in the fridge to firm up for 30 minutes.
  • Place the red sweets in a sandwich bag and press the air out of the bag. Carefully crush the sweets into small pieces using a rolling pin.
  • Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out 1cm thick. Use a large heart cutter to cut out the shapes and place on the lined baking trays. Then use a smaller heart cutter to cut a heart out of the middle of each biscuit.
  • Sprinkle the sweets to fill the heart window in the middle of the biscuit. You can also use a cocktail stick to make a hole in the top of the biscuit, so you can thread a ribbon through once baked.
  • Bake the biscuits for 12 minutes until golden and the sweets are melted. Leave the biscuits to film before transferring to a wire rack.
