  5. Flour a surface and roll or pat out one dough to a 1/2 cm thick

  6. Using a 3.5cm heart shaped cutter, stamp out as many shapes as you can, re-rolling the dough as needed. You need an even number of hearts, I got 16

  8. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and lay the heart cut outs on them

  9. Prick lightly all over with a fork and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge
