Fairy Kisses Jam Biscuits








Baking is often born out of boredom or whimsical wandering a for me , the Victoria Sponge cake still alludes me , I 've no idea why but it terrifies me! One day one day  I shall bake a Victoria Sponge but for now I have just baked fairy kisses an ideal to bake with your child/children and no egg and you could even bake it with gluten free flour.

Fairy kisses ideal for a little snack upon a fairy glade in a quiet wood, or perhaps tea in the garden ( weather permitting of course!


Ingredients

6/8 ozs of low fat spread ( you might find you only need 6 ) 

100g caster sugar

2 tea spoon vanilla essence.

Plain flour.

Raspberry Jam


Method

Preheat the oven to 180c

First sift the flour into a bowl.

Then add the spread and sugar , try adding just the 6 oz (spread) if you want less spread the resulting biscuits won't be dry.

Now you could either use a mixer to cream the mixture together, but I just rubbed the fat into the flour gently. This is a task you could get your child / children to do.

At this point you will have a dough. I placed mine in a food bag and chilled for half an hour ( both myself and the dough)

After the half an hour , fetch the dough from the fridge.

Tear off a brussel sprout size piece of dough , roll it into a ball.

Place several the balls into a greased baking tray and gently squash with your palm or the back of a spoon.

Then press your thumb gently into each squashed ball so as it leave a little indent.

Then spoon jam into the indent taking care not to over fill.




Then place in the oven for 12 minutes or until golden brown. You will have enough dough to bake 2 batches.




Perfect to enjoy with a cup of coffee for your cheeky elevenses and I love my coffee machine , it gives me a taste of being in Italy * I have yet to get to Italy but with a good coffee machine and a cup of coffee I am half way there.

  4. Well this is definitely going on my list of 'plans for tomorrow'. Although I think the use of 'sprout sized' made my head feel weird because then I started thinking about biscuits made of sprouts. I don't think that would be good. And I don't think this overthinking of it is good either.

    JUST MAKE THE BISCUITS.
