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.

Yummy and very quick and easy. I used raspberry jam in some and blackcurrant jam on others as these are my favourites. I will certainly be makin them again. I'm considering putting other flavours in the dough and then freezing the raw dough so they are ready to cook when needed. I think I will make them a bit smaller too.

I honestly didn't think they'd be THAT good! They're absolutely scrumptious! My only advice is to make more than 12 out of the dough, they rise quite a bit in the oven ;).

Made these with my 4 year old and they were super easy to make and very taste. We made a 5cm dough roll as the recipe says and they turned out huge, much to my son’s delight. Will definitely make these again.

las27sie, lau24601, maybe the oven was on 190F (about 88C) instead of 190C?

Can they be frozen once baked?

Thanks for your question. To maintain the texture of these biscuits we don't recommend freezing the completed biscuits. You can, however, freeze the dough.

How long do these last for once baked, please?

Thanks for your question. If kept in a sealed container they should keep up to 5 days.

Would I be able to use milk instead of egg to bind? My son has an egg allergy

I would imagine so it would most likely work the same way :)

I always add a few table spoons of dessicated coconut to the dough and sometimes a sprinkle on top before they go in the oven....coconut and jam is a lovely combination!
