2oz (50g) Caster Sugar

1tsp Lemon Juice

Food glitter


Pre heat oven to 150 C, gas mark 2 or 300 F

Cream the butter until soft then add sugar and flourand lemon juice. Mix throughly first using a spoon or fork. Once all ingredients are mixed together use your hand to gradually knead the mixture into a ball. 

Turn mixture out onto a caster sugar dusted surface and press out flat with your hands first before then rolling out with a dusted rolling pin.

 Once the mixture has been rolled out cut out heart shapes with a cutter
