Instructions
  1. Soak the sour cherries in hibiscus tea for 10'.
  2. Whisk the flour in a bowl. Add the baking powder, the baking soda, a pinch of salt and optionally the ground dried hibiscus. Set aside. The ground dried hibiscus adds crimson red color to the biscuits.
  3. Drain the sour cherries. In another bowl add the brown sugar, the vanilla powder, the sunflower seed oil and the hibiscus tea left.
  4. Then start folding and mixing the solids into the liquids; with a rubber spatula whisk gently scrapping around the edge and finishing by folding the mixture on top of itself. In the end add the soaked sour cherries.
  5. Using heart shape cutters, stamp out twenty hearts. Place them on the baking sheet. Refrigerate the heart-shaped biscuits for 30'.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  7. Bake for 15'.
Recipe Notes

Hibiscus is connected with the ancient myth, telling the famous love story between Adonis and Aphrodite. The myth of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, and Adonis, a handsome mortal man, is one of the most popular Greek myths about lust. The beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers of hibiscus have beneficial health properties, specifically for those looking to support cardiovascular health. Dried hibiscus flowers can be used as aphrodisiacs; hibiscus tea, which has a deep red colour and a naturally sweet taste, stimulates the glands involved in sexual activity.
