I think Valentine’s Day is pants. Anyway, instead of the Rolex I was obviously going to buy my boyfriend for this fake holiday, I baked some biscuits. My mum once told me the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Very wise. I used this basic BBC Good food cookie recipe and the idea of using pomegranate from this Great British Chefs recipe. My other half seemed more excited by the cartoon goat on my tuppaware box than the biscuits themselves, but they were made with love! I halved the GF recipe and made 10 cookies.

Pre heat oven to 170 degrees C.

1) Cream together 3/4 cup of butter and 1/3 cup of sugar.

2) Separate an egg yolk and add to the mix.

3) Sift over 1 cup of plain flour, mix and form a dough.

4) Place on baking parchment on a baking tray in small balls and flatten, then dot with pomegranate seeds.

5) Bake from 15 mins.

I set some of the dough aside to experiment with some cocoa powder and just folded it in to make these chocolate swirly biscuits. These were a V-day prez to myself…
