    Method - Roll out your dough very finely and cut out biscuit shapes. Hearts and stars are always nice. Place your biscuits on greased baking sheets and bake in batches for 10-15 minutes until the biscuits are set and just beginning to colour. Take your biscuits out of the oven and allow them to harden on the baking sheets then transfer to wire racks to completely cool. Store in an airtight container.
