  • 250g unsalted butter, softened
  • 150g golden icing sugar, sieved
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 300g plain flour
  • 75g cornflour
  • 125g seedless jam, strawberry or raspberry work well
  • 6cm fluted cutter and a 1.5cm (just over ½in) plain cutter, or a plain icing nozzle
  • 2 baking sheets lined with baking paper

These biscuits are handy to have in the freezer to take out for packed lunches or unexpected guests


  1. Cream together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg, flour and cornflour to make a smooth, stiff dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 mins.
  2. Roll out half the dough on a lightly floured surface so that it’s 3mm thick. Stamp out rounds using the cutter and spread out on a large parchment-lined baking sheet.
  3. Repeat with the remaining dough, re-rolling the trimmings as needed. Stamp out a tiny shape in the centre. (You could use a small round plain nozzle instead of a mini cutter.) Chill for 15 mins.
  4. Heat the oven to 180°C. Bake biscuits for 12 mins, until very pale but firm.
  5. Spoon 1tsp of jam on to the centre of each round biscuit. Sandwich together with the other hole-stamped biscuits and return to the oven for 5 mins. Cool on a wire rack. Store for up to 1 week in an airtight box.
