Valentines Day Jammy Dodgers

Whether you celebrate it or not, it’s hard to avoid the commercial side of Valentines Day. The shops of full of hearts and roses, cards and chocolates, and it must be the busiest time of year for florists and chocolatiers. As I am neither one of those I wanted to share with you a very easy but very delicious valentines bake, and whether you are in a relationship or not, these little homemade jammy dodgers are delicious to share with everyone around you – as let’s face it, homemade treats are always more special than anything you would buy in the shops!

  • 225g unsalted butter – softened
  • 150g icing sugar – sifted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 300g plain flour
  • 12 heaped tsp of jam (take your pic)

Makes 18 biscuits (cutter size depending).

Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and fluffy

Add the egg and flour and beat until you have a soft, sticky dough (I used a mixer for this to save the achy arms).

Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for 1-2 hours.

Preheat your oven to 160’C and lightly grease 2 large baking sheets.

Lightly dust your work top and roll out half the dough to the thickness of a pound coin.

Take a 7cm (or there abouts) cookie cutter and cut out your biscuits. Take a smaller heart shaped cutter and cut the hearts out the middle (I then also baked the middles and they made a nice sweet snack).

Any excess dough you have from the edges keep rolling and cutting until you are out of dough.

Carefully place these on your baking tray and then repeat the process with the second half of dough, but don’t cut out the middles.

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until just starting to turn golden.

Once removed, leave to cool slightly before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cool, spoon a tsp of the jam onto each complete biscuit and then top with the heart window biscuit, remembering to be very gentle as the biscuits can be fragile.

Dust with icing sugar before serving, and enjoy!
