  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.

really yummy, so easy to make! had my 18 month old son helping me, he loved it, not too complicated so easy for kids to get involved. i rolled half of the dough out and cut into shape with the cookie cutters, and did the other half as in the recipe, both worked just as well as eachother.. quite cake like, but demolished pretty quickly, really good recipe.

This was too soft to roll and then cut, either needs putting in the fridge for 1/2 hour or you can roll into 12 balls and press them down into biscuit shapes (which is what I did). I also kneeded poppy seeds into the dough and used lemon curd in the centres. Worked very well and were very popular.

Really easy and really lovely. Great for the kids in my class, but also for my 29 yr old boyfriend/big kid! Only put them in the oven for 12 mins which was fine in my fan assisted oven.
