Pink Velvet Bakewell Tart Heart Cookie biscuit recipe

It’s that time of year again Valentine’s Day and they way to anyone’s heart is sometimes through baking.

I love a Bakewell Tart be it mini or a large one to share with friends and family.

Be it Valentine’s Day or any day of the year they could even be for a friend who’s unwell or fwmiot member as a loving gift or treat, what’s not to love about the smell of freshly baked goods in your home.

The aroma is something special and it’s always good to have a tempting treat for visitors. If I could bottle the smell of anything baked and make candles out of it they’d probably sell like hot cakes.

Which leads me to the Recipe
