Method

  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.

I am always making this recipe, my children,7 and 3, love them as does my husband. Rather than rolling into a tube I just roll them into balls.

Just fresh out of the oven. Used carnation caramel instead of jam. Will be making them again.

I whipped these up when my daughter reminded me that she needed to take a plate to school to share for morning tea which I had forgotten about. They were fantastic and she said they were the first thing to get eaten. Will be making these again and again.

Really easy to make. A great recipe to do with kids. My little girl loved it. If I made them again though I think i'd add a splash of venilla or almond essence.
