Pink Citrus Cookies Recipe

Kids loooove helping to make biscuits. Rolling the dough, using the cookie cutters and icing the bikkies … so much fun! This fun kids cookie recipe produces sweet little heart-shaped biscuits, coated in pretty pink lemon-flavoured icing. Granted, if the kids are ‘helping’ the icing might not turn out as perfect as in the picture – but they’ll still be absolutely delicious. Sweet and light with a little citrus tang.
