Jam Filled Biscuits

Once you have your biscuit dough ready made up and you have left it for a while to rest in the fridge , so that it has firmed up enough to be able to roll it out, we are ready to proceed.

For each Italian biscuits we will be needing two biscuits, one for the base and one for the top, that will have a whole in the middle.

Cookie Cutters on

So when you are rolling out the biscuit dough and cutting the cookies remember to have the same amount of each.

You will need a small round cookie cutter and an even smaller cookie cutter to cut out the middle of the cookies.

Side Note: The top biscuits,  as they have a hole in the middle will tend to bake quicker than the bases. So I suggest that you bake the bases and the tops on different baking trays.

  • Flour the surface you are using, and roll out the dough to about ½ cm in thickness.
  • Cut out  cookies and place on the baking trays.

Tip: It is far easier to cut out the middle of the cookie if you first place the cookies on the baking tray and cut them out there, than cutting them out on the table and trying to transfer them without losing their shape.

Preaparing The Biscuits Tops

  • Once you have used up all the cookie dough place in a pre-heated at 180°C for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Leave to cool down
  • Take the tops and place on a sheet of greaseproof paper and dust with icing sugar
