Festive Jammy Dodgers

This time of year is a great excuse to do some baking, and this recipe from BBC Good Food is one of my favourites. Normally I just make round or flower shaped cookies, but this time I decided to go with a snowflake and star combination as it is the festive season. 

You will need:

  • A jar of good quality (or homemade) jam. (Raspberry is my personal favourite)
  • 100g butter, room temperature.
  • 175g caster sugar.
  • 1 large egg.
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste.
  • 200g plain flour.

Mix the butter and sugar together in a bowl until just combined. Add the egg and vanilla and mix again until fully incorporated.
Add the flour into the mixture and combine until a the dough forms a ball. Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and roll to about 5mm thick. Place the rolled out dough onto a tray and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
Once firmed, cut out your shapes with your desired cutter. In this instance, I’ve used a snowflake shaped cutter. On every second one, cut the middle out with a smaller cutter. For the detail on the top pieces, I’ve stamped a pattern with a fondant cutter.

Once these are cut, place them on tray and refrigerate again for at least 10 minutes. Heat your oven to 170℃/340℉. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes.
Once baked, transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once cool, sandwich biscuit together with jam.

These are delicious cookies that will go down a treat with the family, and are a perfect accompaniment to an afternoon tea or coffee.
