Sweet Hearts

Happy Valentines!  Whether your madly in love or a single pringle, here's a recipe for some heart shaped cookies.
Ingredients
50g unsalted butter
75g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
150g plain flour
25g dark chocolate ~melted and cooling
More chocolate to decorate
 
Method
1. Preheat oven to 180*C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Put butter, sugar and egg yolk in a bowl and beat well. Stir in flour and then knead until smooth.
3. Divide the dough in half, then knead the melted chocolate into one half until it is evenly coloured.
4. Roll out chocolate dough between two sheets of baking parchment, to a thickness about 3mm. Then roll out plain dough in same way.
5. Cut out hearts for both doughs using different sized cutters. Place a light-coloured heart in the centre of a larger chocolate heart and vice-versa.
6. Bake for about 10 minutes and leave cool.
7. To decorate, melt chocolate and put into a piping bag or sandwich bag and snip the end. Carefully pipe dots or zigzags. Leave to set.
Happy Valentines

Criticism is appreciated. Rudeness is not.
