The children love to bake and asked to make jam sandwich biscuits one afternoon – so who was I to argue? These are so easy for you to bake with the children together and taste great too. I always feel like making jam sandwich cookies is a bit of a rite of passage, something all children should do – and ours love to get baking!

Jam sandwich biscuits are so easy to make and can be tweaked using any flavour jam you like and any shape cookie cutters you like too. They are a biscuit for any occasion and one that children really enjoy, both in the making and the eating!

We love using strawberry jam or raspberry jam for the filling in this recipe but you could also use lemon curd, marmalade or even chocolate spread! You could also make cream sandwich biscuits with a layer of thick buttercream in the middle too.

We cut stars in the biscuits but you can make any shaped holes you feel like, linking them easily to any occasion. They’re such a happy thing to bake but also a wonderful comfort food, the sort of thing that makes you think instantly of your own childhood.

Why should you make Jam Sandwich Biscuits?

These jam biscuits last well in an airtight container and we love adding them to lunchboxes for a picnic or day out as a little sweet treat too. They’re a great alternative to jam thumbprint cookies or even typical cookies and the whole family really enjoy them.

What equipment do you need for this cookie recipe?

You can make this recipe simply with things you already have in your kitchen but here are the things we use in case there’s something you don’t already have:

As you can see, it’s all things you probably have already – that is what makes flapjacks so simple and convenient to make.

So here’s our Jam Sandwich Biscuit Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 200 g margarine or unsalted butter
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • raspberry jam or strawberry jam

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
  • Beat butter or margarine and sugar until soft, light and fluffy before beating in the egg yolks.
  • Fold in the flour, almonds and salt.
  • Knead the cookie dough on a lightly floured surface before rolling out to 0.5cm thick.
  • Cut circles from the dough using a biscuit cutter and place on a greased baking tray or baking sheets lined with parchment paper or baking paper.
  • Cut holes out of the centre of half the biscuits – I chose to make star shaped holes.
  • Prick the top of the dough circles with a fork and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  • When cooled, place a teaspoon of jam on top of each of the complete biscuits and place a biscuit with a hole on top. You can dust with icing sugar or just enjoy as they are.
