  1. 1

    Set the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Lightly grease 2-3 baking trays.

  2. 2

    Rub the butter into the flour until it forms bread crumbs, then stir in the vanilla extract, sugar and egg yolks and beat with a wooden spoon until it forms a dough.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g Butter (unsalted) chilled
    • 325g Plain white flour
    • 125g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 2tsp Vanilla extract
    • 2 Egg yolk(s) (free range) large
  3. 3

    Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly into a ball. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

  4. 4

    Roll the mixture out on a lightly floured work surface, then using cutters cut out your letters or words. To make the jam hearts, cut out two equal sized hearts, then use a smaller cutter to cut a small heart out of the centre of one of them and fill with jam.

  5. 5

    Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on size and thickness, or until just pale golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking trays, then cool completely on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar or ice with royal icing.

    For this step you'll need:

    • Icing sugar to dust
