Jammie Dodgers

Jammie dodgers always remind me of birthday parties, along with classic party rings of course. They were never a standard at-home biscuit and certainly more of a treat. When shortbread biscuits just aren't enough, sandwich two together between a delicious jam or curd of your choice.


  • 175g cold salted butter, cubed

  • 250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting

  • 100g caster sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • Raspberry jam


  • In a food processor or with your hands, mix together the cold butter and flour till it resembles fine breadcrumbs

  • Add the caster sugar, and give it another quick blitz or mix around to incorporate

  • Add the egg and blitz till you start to form a dough

  • Once the dough is thick enough and clinging to the side of the blades/or formed within your bowl, tip it out onto a floured surface and knead it to a smooth ball

  • Separate your dough into two pieces, wrap in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes

  • Meanwhile, line your baking trays with baking paper and pre-heat your oven to 180°C / 160°C Fan / 350°F / Gas Mark 4

  • Once the dough has sufficiently chilled, dust your worktop and rolling pin with flour

  • Roll the first batch of dough to a pound coin thickness and using a 7cm cutter (fluted or straight edge), lightly press on your dough to create the shortbread biscuits

  • Once all your biscuits are cut and at an even number, using a 2cm cutter, cut out a small hole in the middle of half of the biscuits (this will make the top of the Jammie Dodger). You can mix this up and use different shapes, maybe a heart like the traditional jammie dodger.

  • Place your biscuits on the lined trays and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Carefully watch these as they don't take long to go from golden to dark.

  • Remove your biscuits from the oven and leave to cool on the tray for five minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to fully cool before filling with a delicious jam

  • Once cooled, spread a small amount of jam on one the base of the biscuits and sandwich together with the top biscuit

Dust with some caster sugar or icing sugar and enjoy x
