  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Rub the flour, sugar and butter together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively, you can do this in the food processor. Add enough egg to bring the mixture together to form a stiff dough.

  2. Flour your hands and shape the dough into a tube, about 5cm in diameter. Cut into 2cm-thick slices and place on a large baking sheet. Space them out as the mixture will spread when baking.

  3. Make a small indentation in the middle of each slice with the end of a wooden spoon, and drop a tsp of jam in the centre. Bake for 10-15 mins until slightly risen and just golden. Cool on a wire rack.

Lovely biscuits. Due to my son's allergy to eggs, I used 60ml of buttermilk & 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to replace the egg. The result: a cross between a biscuit & a scone. My family loved them. Will definitely make again.

Very easy to make and very yummy. I didn;t measure the last time I made this and when it seemed a little dry I added some banana instead of more egg and although I'm personally not a fan of banana flavoured food my husband 3 children very quickly devoured the lot.

Gorgeous, my 6 and 2 yr old helped me with this easily. The biscuits are huge, I made 6 big ones and then 12 smaller ones that were half the size. Very easy and very popular!

very tasty and very easy to prepare. Its one of those recipes you can knock up the last minute. Made these for work and they were very well received. Will definitely be making again.

These are really easy to make and are really good too!

They are best warm from the oven, but still good cold.

A great choice if you want to whip up something quick, or if you're baking with children. Also easy to double/triple/etc up on batch size.

These are ok, jammy bit's the best though! Also tried with marmalade which is tasty (:

These are great. Really easy to make. Going to make a second batch today and will try adding dessicated coconut as someone suggested. Kids love them.

lovely, quick and easy to make! I prefer to roll out and cut with cutters. Best the day you bake them as they are crispy on the outside but soft in the middle. Perfect!

These were the nicest and easiest biscuits I've ever made.
I used different jams in them for variety.
