Method

  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.

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 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.

Meant to say, the pupil I made these with used Apricot instead of Strawberry Jam, and renamed them "Fried Egg Biscuits" :)

Made these at school with a pupil I work with and she really enjoyed doing it - unlike a lot of other recipes, she was able to do it all herself, it even gave her a bit of maths practice! Weighing out the ingredients, dividing up the dough roll etc.
She made enough for the whole class and a few extra for the teachers. A big hit, very tasty and a great recipe!!

Made these in no time at all, so simple and tasted nice too. Didn't last more than 10 minutes in our house.

very nice indeed, even though they cooked on grill setting for 10 minutes before I realised and put the oven on LOL cooked them for another 15 min on oven setting!

so, not only delicious but failsafe if you are a bad baker! lol My 2 year old son loved putting the jam on and licking the spoon after.

I've made these biscuits lots and lots of times. They taste delicious and they're so easy to make. My 2 boys love them and so do their classmates!

These are absolutely lovely. I always make the hole for the jam quite big as I personally like them quite 'jammy'. I use the "squeezy" jam as its miles easier being able to just squeeze it from the bottle than mucking about with a teaspoon and a pot of jam. Also I use "Clover Light"as opposed to butter in all baking like this as I honestly find it tastes great and saves a bit on fat and cals!
