  • 225g Stork

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

      2. Beat the Stork with the sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
      3. Beat in the egg and vanilla scraping sides occasionally, until blended. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt just until blended. (Do not overmix).
      4. Using lightly floured hands take a walnut size piece of dough and shape into balls. Arrange 3-inches apart on the baking trays. Gently press balls into 2-1/2-inch circles. Pinch bottom to form point of "heart". Gently indent dough in centre on top to shape into "heart".
