Jammy Smiles Biscuits


This weeks baking boredom buster is the  accomplishment of making a jammy dodger or in my case a jammy smile. I am mastering my skills I hope to make a Victoria sponge cake one day whilst this is not hard in some peoples eyes, I am rather late to the baking and cooking bandwagon, but as they say you are never to old to learn new skills.



125g unsalted butter or low fat spread
75g Caster sugar or sugar substitute
200g Plain flour
1-2 semi skimmed milk or skimmed milk
Tea spoons of strawberry or raspberry jam or infact any jam for the number of biscuits that you bake.
Icing Sugar to dust ( optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 180 C ( Gas mark 4)
Either line 2 large baking trays with greaseproof paper or my personal favourite use Lakeland Cake release on the baking tray.

2. beat together the butter and sugar. Add the flour and milk, and bring together until it make one big ball.


3 Divide the mixture into 4

Sprinkle your rolling pin and work surface with a little flour and roll until the dough is around the thickness of a one pound coin.

4 Using your desired cutters of choice cut out your desired shapes ( mine was smiley face shales from Lakeland )

5 Bake for 7-9 minutes till the biscuits are slightly golden brown around the edges 
. Leave on the trays to cool, then transfer to a cooling rack.

6. Now you can just leave it at jam in the middle but you don't want to do that do you ?!

7 Treat yourself and make some buttercream and then place the jam on top ! Jamtastic

 100g butter, 200g icing sug, up to 1tbsp milk 1tsp vanilla. Beat butter, beat in icing sugar & vanilla, add milk til fluffy.



You feel sad that happy little smiley is going to it's dome don't you?


Nahhh
