These biscuits are such a lovely bake to make with children. They're simple but look great too - and taste pretty lovely as well.

Servings: 6 biscuits


  • 300 g plain flour
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 200 g margarine
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • jam


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
  • Beat the margarine and sugar until soft, light and fluffy before beating in the egg yolks.
  • Fold in the flour, almonds and salt.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to 0.5cm thick. Cut circles from the dough and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • 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.
