Cream the butter and sugar then beat in the eggs and vanilla. In another bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the butter and eggs and mix. If it’s too sticky add a little more flour, then wrap in cling film and refrigerate for an hour.
After we chilled the dough, we rolled it out on a floured surface and used a large heart shape cookie cutter to cut out our cookies. Then I cut some bamboo BBQ skewers in half and pushed one into the back of each cookie. Just to make it secure I added a little extra cookie dough over the top (as in the right in the picture above) but I’m not sure it really needed the extra layer as they rise quite well in the oven and surround the sticks quite well.
