Serves Preparation Time  Cooking Time
4 People  15 – 20 Minutes  15 – 20 Minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 70 gm butter, soft
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Coloured Poppins candies


Step 1

In a bowl, add butter and sugar and using a hand blender beat it till soft and fluffy.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry mixture to the butter mix and using your hands bring it all together. Add a little bit of milk if necessary.

Step 3

Wrap the dough in a cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Divide the dough into 4-5 workable portions. Roll the dough balls into about ¼” thickness. Using a heart shape cookie cutter cut out the cookie dough. Using another smaller cutter make a hole in its centre.

Step 5

Carefully place the cut cookies in a tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough.

Step 6

Crush the Poppins candies into a powder form. Fill the hollow of the cut cookies with powdered candies. Do not over fill.

Step 7

Bake in a preheated oven, at 180C for 12-15 minutes. When the cookies are done, let them cool down completely before taking them off the baking tray.

Step 8

Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
