Method:

1.Pre-heat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2. Lightly grease a baking tray.

2.Place the butter and the sugar in a mixing bowl and beat together until pale.
Add the flour and bring the mixture together until a soft dough is formed.

3.Tip the dough onto a floured surface and using a floured hand gently roll out
to ½ cm thickness. Using a heart shaped cutter, cut out the dough and place on
the prepared baking sheet.

minutes on the tray to cool and then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool
completely.

5.To make the icing, mix the icing sugar with the strawberry yogurt and beat
until smooth, add the colouring and beat again.

6.Using a small piping bag, pipe the strawberry icing within the contours of
the biscuit. Allow to set.
