Butter Biscuits with Jam

Jam Cookies Butter Biscuits Sables Raspberry Strawberry

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! Today it is finally sunny for once in England and I wish it would last forever XD I also finally found a little studio flat to move into in a few weeks so now all I need is a new car :') Today's post is a recipe one :) Mum makes a similar Serbian one called 'vanilice' but she had 3 recipes and couldn't remember which one was the best one.. typical :') So I found these similar ones online on BBC and I really liked them as they melt in your mouth and are super yummy :)


Ingredients:


250g plain flour
200g butter
100g icing sugar
pinch of salt
2 egg yolks
raspberry jam (or other jams)

Method:


1. Heat oven to Gas Mark 3 (I have a weird oven so did 5).
2. Using your fingers, rub together the flour, butter, icing sugar and salt in a bowl until they look like           breadcrumbs.
3. Add the egg yolks and mix to make a dough, roll out onto a lightly floured surface until about 0.5cm     thick then cut out shapes.
4. Make holes in half the biscuits using a fluted cutter (whatever that is, I used a toothpick).
5. Put all the biscuits on a baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown and then     transfer to a wire rack to cool.
6. Using a teaspoon, spoon jam onto the whole biscuits and sandwich with the ones which have             holes in them and enjoy!

These were so easy to make and came out really tasty! Although you do have to get your hands messy. Also, save the egg whites and then make macaroons or something so you're not wasteful and who doesn't love more cakes XD Let me know if you give them a try! :)

  1. Ha, these are brilliant!! They look so immaculate and pretty! I'm not SO keen on jam in things so I won't be making them but I do think they look fab! And, great minds think alike as I made a card version of something similar- current post! Ha!x

  3. these do look yummy! you did a great job. It's been a while since I baked cakes, I was more into cold deserts this Summer just because it is so hot here in the city that turning an oven seems like a suicide move:)! I will keep this in mind for when Autumn arrives.

    It's great you recommend making something else from the left over whites, it is always important not be wasteful.

    1. They were yummy! I don't blame you! England always has colder days where you can turn the oven on so it's fine xD I'll hopefully have a macaroons recipe up soon :) xx
