    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…


  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.

Wow, these biscuits are really fantastic, so easy to make and delicious to taste. Popular with the children and robust enough to stand up to the lunch box test!

This is a favourite with all the family - especially my grandson who enjoys making as well as eating - and mummy and daddy are not allowed to help

Very easy to make with my 2 year old, who enjoyed eating them as much as making them.
