Preparation steps

1.

Heat the oven to 190°C / 375°F. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

2.
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until soft and creamy. Gradually beat in the egg and vanilla.
3.
Add the flour and mix to a dough.
4.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1/2".

5.
Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut biscuits out of the dough and place on the baking tray.
6.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until pale golden-brown. Cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
7.
For the filling: put the jam and lemon juice in a small pan and heat gently until melted. Bring to a boil and boil for 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool and thicken.
8.
For the icing: sift the icing sugar in to a bowl and stir in the water. Set 1/4 of the icing aside. Colour the remaining icing pink and spread over half the biscuits.
9.
Spread the jam on the un-iced biscuits and place an iced biscuit on top.
10.
Drizzle with the reserved white icing and leave to set.
