Hello, today my post is something a little different to my normal beauty / fashion posts. I love getting in the kitchen, getting my hands messy and baking however I never think to blog about it, but here is my simple and yummy recipe to make Homemade Jammy Dodgers.
250g unsalted butter, softened
104g golden caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour
seedless raspberry jam
2 tbsp custard powder
85g icing sugar
1 - Heat the overn to 180c/160 fan/gas4. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.
2 - Beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla extract, then stir in the flour with ¼ tsp salt. Roll the dough out thickly, making sure to use lots of flour on your work surface and this mixture is rather sticky.
3 - Cut out a large circular shape biscuits. Then on half of the biscuits use a smaller cutter to cut out a smaller hole in the middle of the biscuit. Place the biscuit with the smaller hole on top of the whole biscuit, this will create the classic Jammy Dodger shape.
4 - Spoon the raspberry jam into the holes of the uncooked biscuits.
5 - Bake for 8-12 mins until pale golden and crisp. Cool on the trays.
6 - Mix the icing sugar and a small amount of water so you have a runny icing. Drizzle all over the cooled biscuits and then eat!
I hope you enjoyed reading a post that is a little different, let me know if you bake them :)
