The Boy’s Easy Jammie Biscuits


200g self-raising flour

100g caster sugar

100g softened butter

1 egg, lightly beaten

4 teaspoons of strawberry or raspberry jam


  1. Heat oven to 170C Fan
  2. Rub the flour, sugar and butter together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  3. Add enough egg to bring the mixture together to form a dough
  4. Flour your hands and shape the dough into a tube, about 5cms in diameter
  5. Cut into 2cms thick slices and place on a baking tray
  6. Space them out as the mixture will spread when baking
  7. Make a small indentation in the middle of each biscuit using the back of a teaspoon and drop a teaspoon of jam into the centre
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until slightly risen and just golden
  9. Cool on a wire rack
  10. Enjoy with a mug of tea

(Makes 12)

  1. Oh this looks like a good thing to try when I have Rosie here. She loves helping make cakes and biscuits (although her job is mainly licking bowls and spoons at the end of the session!)

  2. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I like that the jam can be changed up for a different taste. Well done to TB for creating such tasty looking biscuits (cookies).
