Instructions:

• Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Then add the vanilla extract, flour, salt and mix.
• Shape your dough into a ball and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill. Once chilled, roll out the dough- to the thickness of a £1 coin.
• Cut out your heart shapes using the cutter.
• Place the hearts onto baking paper and bake at 200 degree heat for 6-8 minutes.
• Once cooled. Turn half of  your cookies upside down and spread some jam (I used a piping bag as it’s quicker and less messy.)
• Place the other cookies on top of the jam cookies and gently press together.
• Melt the white chocolate and add a tiny tiny bit of food colouring.
• Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag (I used a tiny nozzle- if you’re just using a bag, cut the tip very small.)
• Drizzle the chocolate over one side of the cookies and immediately top with coloured sprinkles.
