Happy Valentine’s Day!! I love to have a movie night on Valentine’s Day and bake some sweet treats. I thought this year it would be nice to make something heart shaped seeing as it is Valentine’s Day. Here is a recipe for some heart shaped jam biscuits, a bit like Jammie Dodgers. They’re perfect for giving to a loved one or for a movie snack. They’re also really easy to make, so great for if you’re in a rush.

Ingredients:

  • 250g butter, softened
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk(you can also use a heaped tablespoon of custard powder instead)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour
  • Jam(around 50g)

Recipe:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.Mix the butter and caster sugar together until pale and fluffy before adding the egg and vanilla extract and stirring well.
  2. Gradually add the flour and mix until it forms a dough. You might need to use your hands towards the end to turn it into a dough.
  3. Wrap in Clingfilm and put in the fridge to chill for around 20-30 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough onto a floured surface until it’s around 0.5cm thick. Take a round biscuit cutter (7-8cm) and stamp around 25 biscuits. Then, using a smaller heart cutter, stamp half the biscuits with it. Pop onto a tray lined with greaseproof paper and bake for 10-12 mins or until pale golden and leave to cool for 30 mins.
  5. Once the biscuits are cool, apply jam to the whole biscuits, spreading evenly. Carefully place the heart biscuits on top and enjoy!
