Strawberry Jam Biscuits

img_0171 img_0163 img_0168Here is my little Strawberry Jam Biscuits for Fiesta Friday #17. I always like simple biscuits, as I find they go so well with a good afternoon tea or coffee. I have always made Biscuits or Sables (in French), and they are very easy to make! Thank you, Angie (from The Novice Gardener), Jhuls (from The Not So Creative Cook), Selma (from Selma’s Table) and Alex (from Dinner Daydreams).
Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 300g of all purpose flour
  • 150g of soft butter
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 25ml of water
  • Icing sugar to dust
  • Strawberry jam

Procedure:

  1. In a bowl add the flour, the icing sugar, and the salt.
  2. Add the butter and mix the ingredients with your fingers.
  3. Add one egg and mix slowly (always with your fingers).
  4. Pour the water and mix until it holds a softball.
  5. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  6. Dust with the flour a clean surface.
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge.
  8. With a rolling pin, flatten the dough (0,5 centimeters thickness).
  9. Grease and flour a baking tray.
  10. Preheat the oven to 170C degrees.
  11. With cookie cutters make a circle shape.
  12. Divide the numbers of the biscuits in 2.
  13. Keep one-half whole (which will serve as the base).
  14. Use small cookie cutters and make a hole in the middle of the other half (you obtain half whole biscuits and half with a hole in the middle, like in the pictures).
  15. Add the biscuits to the baking tray.
  16. Bake for 20 minutes, when the bottom is golden remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  17. With a teaspoon add a little of the jam in the middle of the whole biscuits (the base).
  18. Dust with icing sugar the biscuit with a hole in the middle.
  19. Delicately cover the biscuits with the hole on the top of the whole biscuits.

The biscuits are soft and buttery. You can choose any jam, I opted for a strawberry jam because I like the contrast of the jam and the icing sugar.

Bon Appétit!

PS: When I was younger I used to call them “little mirrors” because the jam in the middle would always shine!

    I have fond memories of this kind of cookie – they´re called ox-eye cookies at home, and were made with currant jelly…..all year long, but especially in season as a variety of Christmas cookie! A beautiful eye catcher!

Anyways, they are seriously my favorite cookies of all times!! thanks for sharing with us today!! hugs
