When it comes to baking any decorative biscuits, I always follow this simple three ingredient recipe as they come out perfect every time. This method creates a shortbread style biscuit that is not only delicious, but it allows you to cut them into any shape you'd like.
I picked up these flower cookie cutters a few months ago for a project I was working on and ever since I have been meaning to experiment with different bakes that I could use them for. Then I came up with this Jammy Dodger style flower biscuit recipe which would go down amazingly at an afternoon tea with your friends.
Ingredients (Makes 6 double biscuits)
350g Plain Flour (plus more for dusting)
110g Caster Sugar
Start by creaming the butter and sugar together in a bowl until smooth.
Tip the flour into the mixture and fold in with a wooden spoon. Once it starts to form together, mould the dough into a ball with your hands.
Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, press out your biscuits. In half of the biscuits, you're going to want to use a smaller flower cookie cutter to remove the middle.
Once all the biscuits are on the baking tray, put them into the fridge for up to 30 minutes to stop them from spreading in the oven.
In the meantime, pre-heat your oven to 180C.
Place the biscuits into the oven for 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
When they've completely cooled, take the bottom biscuit and spread the jam all over the surface followed by another biscuit on top to sandwich the two together. Sprinkle with icing sugar for added decoration.
