  • 1 quantity basic biscuit dough - link in recipe
  • 1 tsp cinnamon



    A fragrant spice which comes from the inner bark of a tropical tree. When dried, it curls into…

  • 6 tbsp raspberry jam



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

  • 6 tbsp icing sugar, sifted
  • icing, to decorate


  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Make up the basic biscuit dough (click here for the recipe), 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.

We love these biscuits! My kids ask for them again and again! The mixture softens very quickly even after being refrigerated for over an hour so I use plenty of flour on the worktop and rolling pin to stop the mixture sticking.

It worked... but the dough was very hard to handle.. super buttery biscuits which made the dough very sticky even after 1 hour of refrigeration!

Fantastic! Made it for Comic relief bake sale at work. The actual cookie dough was a bit too soft to work with and I struggled it with but otherwise the end result after adding more flour was lovely.

These are delicious!! They also helped raise lots of money for Comic Relief! You definitely need to add more flour as the dough did keep sticking to the rolling pin. I also found that they tasted great when they were a bit thinner. (Take care not to over cook though if they are quite thin). Definitely going to make these again!

Lovely biscuits. Made them with my 9 yr old daughter with extra ones decorated like party rings. Really easy. Important to chill the dough for 20 mins and needed small amount of flour on rolling pin to roll last bits of dough. Will make again soon.

Chilled the dough in the fridge for two hours and it was still so sticky - had to add soooo much extra flour ... there must be a mistake in the quantities somewhere?? However, sure they will go down well for Comic Relief tomorrow!

I also made a batch with vanilla essence instead of cinnamon and strawberry jam instead of raspberry. Mmmmm mmmmmm :)

Have just made these with my 4 year old daughter and 3 year old son, they're great! So easy to make, although did require more flour for rolling to prevent sticking to the rolling pin. I made the biscuits quite thin which has worked really well. Will definately make again...... probably quite soon in fact, as this batch is disappearing fast!

these are fantastic! i had to put extra flour in at the end to make it easier to roll out but i love them! i haven't got any cutters, i used a wine glass for the outside and the end of a spatula for the inside :) i also put a bit of ginger powder in the mixture. i found making them thinner worked best too.
