For the shortbread:

  3. Wrap the mixture in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out the dough on a work surface lightly dusted with flour (about 5mm thick should do it).
  5. Use heart shaped cutters to cut out 10 biscuits and place on a baking tray (if you don't have heart shaped cutters, use our free heart shaped template - see the image above!)
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until pale-golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

For the decoration:

  1. Lightly brush the tops of the heart biscuits with apricot jam.
  2. Knead and roll out the Pink and Red Ready to Roll Icing on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar.
  3. Cut out heart shapes using the same heart cutters used to make the shortbread biscuits.
  4. Place the icing hearts on top of the biscuits.
  5. Decorate using Love Hearts sweets, smarties and edible pearls by sticking to the icing with cooled boiled water.
