  • Stir the flour vigorously with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a ball. Set it aside for a few minutes to cool down a little but pipe while stir warm and pliable.
  • Fit a large piping bag with a large closed star tip. Spoon dough into the bag and carefully pipe the hearts on the baking paper.
