  • 18 large pink and white marshmallow, cut in half across the middle
  • 25g desiccated coconut


  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla together with a pinch of salt until smooth. Fold in the flour and coconut to form a dough.

  2. On a floured surface, shape the dough into a round, then roll to the thickness of a £1 coin. Cut into rounds using a 6cm cutter. Lift onto baking sheets, then bake for 14 mins until light golden. Cool for a few mins, then transfer to a cooling rack.

  3. To sandwich the biscuits, lay half out on a baking sheet, under-side up. Put ½ tsp jam onto each one, top with a piece of marshmallow, then bake for 2½ mins or until just melted. Remove from oven, then quickly top with the other biscuits, pressing down so that the marshmallow sticks them together and just oozes out. Cool for 10 mins. Put the coconut and remaining jam onto plates, dip the edges in the jam, then roll in the coconut. Will keep in an airtight tin for up to 3 days.

These biscuits are AMAZING!! They are so yummy & moreish! I took them into work for my colleagues and they disappeared within minutes. They can be quite fiddly to make & I did have to work the dough together with my hands to bring it all together rather than just the spoon but it's definitely worth it. These will be becoming a regular make in my house!

Fantastic! Not too tricky to make, looked like the picture and lots of lovely positive comments from work colleagues. I even made homemade marshmasllows

I just made these and they taste so nice and look so good!
I used somebody's suggestion to warm the jam a little first and found that worked well. I also put the dough into the fridge, wrapped in cling film for a while first because it was wet and sticky. I'm looking at them right now and am so tempted to eat another...!

Wow! These were really fun to make and looked amazing! I found the dough extremely sticky though, so had to use a fair bit of flour when rolling out. Perfect for my daughter's 4th birthday.

These were absolutely gorgeous. Easy to make and disappeared very quickly. Think these are destined to be a family favourite for years to come!

SOOO tasty! I baked these purely because they looked so sweet, but they also taste amazing! Much more of a mouthful than they look in the picture, which is a good thing. Mine came out much more golden than in the picture, but still looked so lovely.

Makes a good sized biscuit - they look a lot smaller in the photo, so you actually get more biscuit for the calories than you might think! I warmed the jam first in the microwave as I found it more manageable, especially when dipping the edges of the biscuits in. I also used vegetarian marshmallows (from www.scrumptioussweets.co.uk) which required a little longer in the oven than the 2 1/2 minutes stated above to melt sufficiently.
