I made some shortbread biscuits using Delia’s recipe, which always works and is really easy. I like the look of these biscuits too. http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/icedbiscuits_3054
I added small red hearts made of red royal icing on top of the biscuits to make them really stand out. For a gift try wrapping them in red, pink or clear cellophane which you can get if you ask at a florist. Then tie with a pretty bow to make a really nice present.
