Simple and fun little biscuits that are ideal to make with kids. Why not try these out over the holidays.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C/gas mark 4). Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking parchment.

  2. Beat together the softened butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and fluffy.

  3. Add in the beaten egg and mix until combined before adding the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix together until a soft dough is formed.

  4. Roll the dough into small balls (approx. 3cm diameter) and place onto the baking trays, leaving a gap for the biscuits to spread in the oven. Gently press the centre of each biscuit with your thumb to create a hollow in the centre.

  5. Add approximately ½ tsp of jam to the centre of each biscuit or until the hollow is filled.

  6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until very lightly coloured. Leave to cool before moving to a wire rack.

    These were easy to make and tasted delicious.
    I added a dribble of water to the jam to stop it boiling over and burning. (When I used to make jam tarts my jam would burn so started added water and no longer had problems.)
