Jam Sandwich Heart Biscuits

Updated: Feb 7

You can’t beat a jam sandwich biscuit and I decided to make some today as I had just made some delicious raspberry jam.



These are lovely melt in your mouth buttery shortbread sandwiched together with my beautiful homemade raspberry jam. You can use any jam you have at home or make your own with my recipe.



They are great for a party or just with a cuppa for elevenses. They are a great bake with kids or grand children as they are quick and easy.

To start line two baking trays with parchment and set aside. Do not pre-heat the oven at this stage as the biscuits need to chill to stop them spreading.


Then put the butter and caster sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer.


Then beat for 5 minutes until light and creamy.



Add the flour and vanilla and beat again until the dough just comes together.



In a floured work surface roll out the dough to about a 4mm depth.



Cut out the shapes and place on the lined baking trays.

Re-roll the dough until it is all used. I got 16 biscuits from mine but it will depend on the size of your cutter.


Cut the middles out of half of the biscuits with a smaller cutter.



Place the trays in the fridge and chill for at least 1 hour or you could leave overnight.

When you are ready to bake your biscuits pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees centigrade (170 fan).


Bake for 12 minutes.


Leave to cool slightly on the baking trays then place them on cooling racks to completely cool and set.



When they are cool, sandwich a heaped teaspoon of raspberry jam between the biscuits and sieve the icing sugar on the top to finish.

Sarah’s extra slice……


I used heart cutters but you can use any cutters that you have.


Any flavour jam would work well in these biscuits.
