Don’t you just love a homemade present? Nothing speaks love more than the thought and effort of a homemade gift! Especially if it is edible too! I love to make homemade gifts and always have done. I always find that people really appreciate something that you have taken time and consideration over rather than just buying something. I have created these little valentines biscuits as a lovely treat for someone special. They are really light and crisp and totally more-ish! They look great if you stack them up, wrap them in cellophane and tie a lovely ribbon around them too.
They are of course gluten and dairy free. I add fresh ginger in to mine for added health benefits however you don’t have to if you find it over powering.
I hope your valentines day is filled with so much love and yummy treats <3
2 cups gluten free flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 small chunk of fresh grated ginger
125g vegan butter
¼ cup honey
½ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
In a bowl cream the butter and sugar, then add honey and egg and mix until combined. In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients and then add to the wet.
Mix together and refrigerate as long as you have available, overnight or for a couple of days is best but at least 1 hour.
Remove dough from refrigerator and place on to floured surface and knead lightly.
Roll out to 5mm thickness and cut into heart shapes using a cookie cutter.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Leave to cool on trays for 5 mins and then transfer to cooking racks. You can decorate these however you like. I used a drizzle of icing sugar topped with rose petals.
