The custard flavour buttercream filling in these biscuits is essential as they are rather boring without it, but once filled they make for a tasty little treat with a cup of tea. Much as you would expect from a custard cream really, but heart shaped and pretty for Valentine's Day, as well as being extremely easy to make. They would take no time at all without the little dots around the edge, but they do finish them off very nicely.
I haven't made any decorated cookies for Valentine's this year, but will take this opportunity to show you the ones I made two years ago. I used a recipe resembling the Biscuiteers' chocolate biscuit one from their book, which is a great reference for tips on decorating with royal icing.
