Method

  1. Step 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. Step 2:

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

  3. Step 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. Step 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. Step 5:

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

  6. Step 6:

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