Jammy Heart Biscuits


I invented these when trying to workout what to make for the Jubilee street party we're hoping to attend  this bank holiday coming.  They are far too yummy, but if you want to try them yourself here is the recipe:

What you'll need:
200g Butter
375g Flour
90g sugar
2 egg yolks
Raspberry Jam (I vote seedless)
Large heart-shape cutters and small heart-shape cutters

Method:
Mix the butter flour and sugar together and then add the yolks and work into the mixture until it becomes a dough.  Wrap in cling film (a little tip is to ready roll it 0.5cm thick before putting it in the fridge).  Leave for at least 2 hrs.  Using large heart-shaped cutters cut out 24 hearts.  Now with the smaller cutter cut a small heart shape out of 12 of the hearts.

Bake in the oven at a preheated 200 degrees for 12 minutes or until they turn light brown.  Let them completely cool.

When they are cool put a very small teaspoon of jam in the centre of each full heart - be careful not to put too much jam in as it will spill over the sides and look messy. put the heart biscuits with heart shape holes on top (jammy dodger style) and you've made them!  Hope yours turn out as well as mine did!
