No need to wonder are jammie dodgers vegetarian, our recipe is suitable for vegetarians and vegan, if you switch the butter for vegan spread. Result.

  1. Step 1:

    Place the flour and butter in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively rub the butter into the flour by hand.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the sugar and orange zest and pulse again or mix with a spoon until the mixture starts to get sticky. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead so that the dough comes together to form a smooth ball. Chill for 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface to the thickness of about 5mm, pressing it together if it cracks a bit. Cut out with 16 x 6cm/5cm cutters, re-rolling the dough until it has all been used. Cut out a smaller round shape out of half the rounds.

  5. Step 5:

    Lay the biscuits on the baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes until pale golden. Remove, transfer to a wire rack and leave until cold.

  6. Step 6:

    Place the icing sugar and strawberry flavouring into a large bowl and mix in 1 tbsp warm water. Add the butter and mix together with a blender or whisk until light and fluffy. Spread the icing over the full biscuits and top with a thin layer of jam then the remaining biscuits. Leave to set for 30 minutes and then enjoy.
