  • Beat together the sugar and butter using an electric whisk, until creamed and soft. Add the egg and whisk together.
  • Add in the flour, baking powder, mixed spice, salt and finally the vanilla extract. Using a wooden spoon mix together until you have a firm but slightly soft biscuit dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and using a rolling pin roll out until the dough is half an inch thick.
  • Cut out your heart shaped biscuit and place onto the lined baking sheet. Using the smaller cutter cut out your centre heart and place a boiled sweet into the space.
  • Bake for 17 minutes. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before peeling them of the parchment paper (the melted boiled sweet will be very hot) and placing them to finish cooling on a wire rack.
Best eaten within a few days, store in an air tight container.
