Ingredients

  • 80g unsalted butter, softened
  • 180g  unrefined golden caster sugar (we like Billington’s)
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • 300g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Jam for decorating (use any flavour you like)

You’ll also need…

  • 2 large baking sheets lined with non-stick baking paper

Method

  1. Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer until pale and creamy. Add the egg and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt to the bowl and beat with a wooden spoon to form a dough.
  2. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Roll spoonfuls of the dough into about 30 walnut-size balls. Put on the baking trays, spaced apart to allow room for spreading. Gently press your thumb into the middle of each biscuit
    to make an indentation. Fill with jam, then bake the biscuits for 10 minutes or until golden. Add a little more jam while the biscuits are still hot, then carefully transfer to wire racks to cool.
