Valentine's Gingerbread Heart Biscuits



If you don’t already know Valentine’s Day is next weekend so I thought I would share a themed baking post today. I really enjoyed making these gingerbread biscuits and they tasted super delicious. I got the recipe from a cute recipe book I’ve had a while called Cakes & Cookies for Beginners, click here to buy. I used ginger to get that authentic gingerbread taste but using cinnamon or mixed spice would be equally good. I actually baked these last year but never shared them on my blog but it was one of my favourite bakes as I was pleased with the results.

I used a 10cm wide shaped cutter to create the iconic heart symbol. I bought it on Amazon, they have a great selection. The recipe was actually fairly straight forward and used everyday ingredients. If you are feeling extra creative you could top the biscuits with icing or dip them in melted chocolate, there are so many options! I find baking so fun and therapeutic plus I love tasting the results. Themed Valentine's biscuits would add a really personal touch to a gift, you could wrap them in a cellophane bag and tie it with red ribbon.

Do you like gingerbread biscuits too? Have I inspired you to do some Valentine's baking? Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! :-D Xx
