Homemade Jammie Dodgers

Saturday 30 November 2019

You know it's December when you start to whip out your old Christmas cookie recipe book! I like to make these British treats while listening to Christmas music (cue 'Driving home for Christmas'). You can finish these cookies off with icing sugar or leave them plain. You can also make your own jam from scratch, or cheat like I did this time and pick some up on your next grocery shop.

1/2 pound butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
Raspberry or strawberry jam (you can make this from scratch, or use store bought)

Cream butter. Add sugar and cream again. Add egg and beat until light. Sift dry ingredients together and add gradually, adding vanilla with first flour addition. Roll out on floured board as thin as possible. cut with round cookie cutter and make small holes in the middle with a smaller cutter! Bake on greased sheet for 10 minutes at 350F.

Remove to wire racks to cool. When cold, put together in pairs with thick jam!
