7. Bake for around 14 mins at 180˚C in a conventional oven.
How to make Valentine's cookie pops!
Roll out the chilled dough to approximately 7mm and cut out heart shapes.
Take a paper straw and flatten around 6cm of one end of the straw.
Insert the flattened end of the straw into the bottom of the chilled dough heart.
Dust the Katy Sue Royal Lace Silicone Mould with cornflour and tap out any excess (alternatively, brush lightly with vegetable fat such as Trex), as this will help release the fondant from the mould. Press a rolled piece of fondant into the mould either with your fingers or use a rolling pin to transfer the pattern.
Remove from the mould then cut a heart from the fondant. Use edible glue to stick the fondant to the cookie pop.
Finish off your cookie pop with a pretty stick-on bow!
