  • Step 4/5

    Arrange the hearts on a lightly greased baking tray (cookie sheet), with good space in between them. I used two trays to accommodate 17 biscuits. Bake in a preheated oven, 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 15-20 minutes until the hearts are a light golden colour.

    Transfer the vanilla biscuits to a wire rack and leave to cool. You can sprinkle a bit of caster sugar on them.
