These romantic jammy biscuits are ideal for a gift for a loved one or even as a treat for yourself!


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C, (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Cut the margarine into small pieces.

    • 100g Margarine (straight from the fridge)
  2. Sieve the flour into a large bowl and then add the sugar, egg yolk and margarine. Mix with a wooden spoon, or cold hands quickly to create a firm dough (mix thoroughly but not for too long). Wrap the dough in foil and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.

    • 125g Plain white flour
    • 100g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 1 Egg yolk(s) (free range)
    • 100g Margarine (straight from the fridge)
  3. Dust the work surface with a little flour and roll out the dough until it is about 4 mm thick. Use the large cookie cutter to cut 16 hearts from the dough.

  4. From half the hearts, cut out a small heart shape from the middle to obtain a heart-shaped hole. Place the hearts (the small ones too) on the greased baking sheets. Fold any dough scraps together, roll them out again, and cut more hearts out.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked and golden brown. The cookies are still soft when they come out of the oven but will harden up as they cool. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking sheets.

  6. Spread the big hearts without holes evenly with raspberry jam. Lay the hearts with holes directly on top. The extra baked mini hearts you can eat as you go along or use as a topping on a dessert.

    • 6 tbsp Raspberry jam
