Simple Jammy Biscuits

By Jo Kinley
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp Damson Plum Jam

Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.

Rub flour, sugar and butter together unti mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively you can do this in the food processor. Add enough egg to bring the mixture together to form a stiff dough. Flour your hands and shape dough into a tube, about 5 cm in diameter. Cut into 2cm thick slices and place on a large baking sheet. Space them out as the mixture will spread during baking.

Make a small indentation in the middle of each slice using the back of a teaspoon and drop a tsp of Damson Plum Jam in the centre. Bake for 10 -15 mins until slightly risen and just golden. Cool on a wire rack.
