  • Unsalted butter, 250 g
  • Plain flour, 250g
  • Spelt flour, 130 g
  • Caster sugar, 120 g
  • Dark Chocolate, to taste
  • A pinch of salt
Method

Put both the sieved flours in a bowl along with sugar, stir.

Cut the cold butter into small pieces and add it to the flours together with a pinch of salt and knead until smooth and homogeneous. Form a brick, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1 hour.

Melt the chocolate with a piece of butter and stir until smooth.

Level the surface with a rolling pin 1cm/½ thick and with the heart-shaped mould create short pastry hearts.

I love your photos. They are always so well composed. I know you have a good phone camera so its a shame if they are coming out blurry. I think you have an iPhone? I'm not familiar with that phone but I know TastyReuben uses one and his photos are always good and sharp.

Sorry to de-rail your Recipe thread...
