Scottish recipes - Flower Jammy Dodgers

Jammy Dodger

Jammy Dodgers are a biscuit (cookie) from my Scottish childhood

Traditionally they are round with a heart cut in the middle but today I made them into flowers with a center, aren't these cute?

A Jammy Dodger is basically two shortbread biscuits (cookies) sandwiched together with Jam (Jelly)

To make these cute flower Jammy Dodgers

you will need

230g/8oz Butter
340g/12oz Plain All Purpose Flour
320g/11oz Icing (Powdered) Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
pinch of salt

  • sift flour into a large bowl, add the powdered sugar and the butter
Sift flour
butter, flour, sugar

  • rub all together with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs, add the vanilla and salt

  • Now kneed and mold into a dough with your hands

  • Cover with cling film (saran wrap) and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes

  • Roll out dough onto a floured surface and cut out the shapes (I used a flower cutter)

  • now take half of the cut outs and cut a smaller hole in them (these will be the tops)

  • Place on a baking sheet and bake at 320F/160C for 10-15 minutes

  • Once ready, place on a wire rack until cooled completely

  • Sandwich together (solid biscuit on bottom, cut out hole on top) with a spoonful of Jam (jelly) of your choice, I used raspberry preserves
add the jam

  • sprinkle with powdered sugar

  5. Thanks for sharing at Fluster's Creative Muster. I'm looking forward to seeing what you link up next week.

  6. Are these ounces by volume as opposed to weight? So, flour = 12oz = 1 1/2 cups and powdered sugar = 11oz = just over 1 1/3 cups? Thanks!
