  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.

SO Gorgeous! Yummy old fashioned biscuits. Great for lunch boxes too. Very easy, kids love them, and grown ups too. Simply irresistable!

I made these biscuits by whizzing everything together in the food processor - sooooo easy! I have made them time and time again - for my children, of course! They are a quick sweet fix which require very few ingredients and absolutely no catering skill to produce.

I made these with the 19 month old I babysit for. I did the dough and she cut shapes out. We made lots of hearts and then did the jam circle in the middle and stuck choc buttons in the middle of others. Really easy, tasty and looked great!

These biscsuits were so lovely. I made them with my little girl on the Monday and Tuesday we had to make another batch. Will definitely make again, my 7 year old loves rubbing the mixture to make breadcrumbs effect.

Lovely! Didn't have self raising flour so added 2 tsp baking powder and it worked out fine.

So so so easy! Very tasty too. I'm going to have to make another batch tomorrow just to make sure it wasn't beginners luck! I didn't have any caster sugar so I used light brown sugar instead. The kids and I are scoffing them as we speak!
