Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Make up the Basic biscuit dough, sifting in the cinnamon when you add the flour. Shape into 2 balls, wrap in cling film and chill for 20-30 mins.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, then stamp out 28 biscuits with a 7-8cm wide cutter. Lay these on non-stick baking sheets. Using a 4cm cutter, cut out the ‘noses’ from half the biscuits. Bake for 10-12 mins until pale golden, then lift onto a cooling rack.
  3. Mix the raspberry jam with the sifted icing sugar. When the biscuits are cool, spoon a little of the jam onto each whole biscuit, then carefully sandwich the other biscuits on top. Serve as they are, or pipe icing, made with a little water, to draw funny faces.

I too made these at school with 10 eager helpers. Kids really loved making'shop' biscuits. The dough is difficult to roll if its not cold enough-resting in fridge is important. We also found keeping the top rings the right shape quite awkward, but then had great fun matching tops and bottoms. We made jam sandwich biscuits with the centres.

Can anyone help please? I can't seem to find a 4cm cutter anywhere, where can you buy these from (in the UK)?

I have been making these for a couple of years now for Red Nose Day at the school that I work at. Easy to do and they always sell out. Used my food processor this time and the dough was mixed up in no time at all.

did anyone else find this dough ridiculously difficult to roll out? I made them a few years ago and had the same problem then - why can't I get it to roll out? It seems to light and fluffy and despite all my best efforts it just sticks to the rolling pin!! Any help appreciated.

I made these last night with my daughter and had some different coloured icing pens, we had great fun drawing silly faces on them. Theyve gone down well with all the family :)

I made these for the cake/biscuit stall at my son's school for Red Nose Day, and we had some at home too. The children loved it, and so did I. They look great too!

I did these for a 'bake off' at work between these and raspberry ripple cupcakes and these won unanimously!

I made them with strawberry jam and they went down a treat, even my husband, not one for cookies, couldn't resist them
