(Makes 10, you will need a heart shaped cookie cutter)

Ingredients:

(for the pastry)

  • 100g cold butter
  • 200g plain flour
  • 30g icing sugar

(for the filling and icing)

  • 150g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp raspberry jam
  • sprinkles to decorate

Method

  1. In a large bowl, sieve the flour and rub in the cold butter with your fingers until it resembles bread crumbs.
  2. Add in the icing and sugar and whilst stirring with a knife, add a teaspoon of ice cold water.
  3. Continue stirring and adding water until the dough starts to come together (about 8 teaspoons). Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until 1/2 cm thickness, cut out with a cookie cutter and arrange on a lined baking tray.
  5. Bake at 200oC for 10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Leave to cool completely.
  6. In a bowl mix the icing sugar with a little water until you get a spreadable consistency.
  7. Spread one cookie with the jam and another with the icing and sandwich together, decorate with sprinkles and continue with the rest.
