  • 1 sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry
  • 1 cup Sugar
  1. Take a sheet of frozen puff pastry and let it thaw for 5 mins.

  2. After 5 mins sprinkle your worktop generously with sugar. Place the puff pastry on top and roll with a rolling pin. This would ensure that the puff pastry becomes thinner and also the sugar at the bottom would stick to the puff pastry.

  3. Now sprinkle a generous handful of sugar on top of the puff pastry as well.

  4. Start folding the puff pastry. Fold one of the long sides of the pastry by a third. Repeat on the other side also. Now do a second folding so that the pastry meets at the centre leaving just a little space in the centre. Now place one of the folded part on top of the other to create a log like shape.

  5. Cling wrap let it chill in the freezer for 10 min and then slice it into 1/4 inch even thickness. Place it on the baking tray lined with parchment paper with enough space in between as they would spread while cooking.

  6. Lightly spread the wings to create a "V" shape so that when they bake they get the perfect heart shape.

  7. Now bake them in a preheated oven of 200°C for 12 mins. Then take the tray out flip the cookies to the other side and bake again for 4 to 5 mins. This would ensure that they get a nice colour on both sides and also you can be sure that they are baked from both sides.

  8. Allow it cool a bit on the tray itself and then store in an airtight container. Serve with evening tea.
