It’s the day for love…

Singleton’s hate it, loved up couple’s love it, you guessed it, St Valentine’s Day!

I’m not one for going crazy on occasions like this, however, I do think it’s cute to send a little card or make a yummy treat for the one you love!

Today, I have made these adorable heart shaped jammy dodgers, who doesn’t love a jammy dodger?! You just can’t go wrong (unless you burn them of course!!). They take no time at all and can be cut into any shape you desire :). Easiest Valentine’s gift ever? I think so.

Here’s the recipe, remember, you can use any shape or jam you fancy (whatever your loved one likes the most ;)):

Heart Shaped Jammy Dodgers:

Total Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes 20 biscuits

Ingredients:

Biscuits:
125g butter
55g caster sugar
180g plain flour

Filling:
Strawberry Jam

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 180c and line two flat sheet trays with baking parchment.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until smooth.
  3. Stir in the flour until a paste has formed and you can make your dough into a ball.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out your dough until 1cm thick.
  5. Using your shaped cutter, cut out 20 biscuits. Putย 10 of the biscuits on the baking tray and set aside. With the remain 10 biscuits use a smaller shaped cutter to removed the middle section. Put these onto your second baking tray.
  6. Put both trays into theย fridge and allow to chill for 10 minutes or so.
  7. Once chilled, bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. When ready, leave to cool completely.
  9. Take one of your full shapes and spread over a generous serving of jam, place a biscuit with the middle cut out on the top to acheive the jammy dodger biscuit.
  10. Sprinkle with icing sugar and repeat process with your remaining biscuits.
