Jammy Dodgers #cookingwithkids

OK, this was a panic photo just as we were heading out on a picnic, but believe me these home-made JDs taste delicious!  Make them next time you have the oven on for something else, they take a matter of minutes to knock up.  A great one to get even the youngest children involved in too, as you can see from the beaming Tatiana in the photos at the bottom of the post!


1 large egg
100g unsalted butter
175g caster sugar
200g plain flour
Jam(s) – cherry, strawberry and raspberry all work well
We also used lemon and passion fruit curds which worked brilliantly too


1. Cream together the butter and sugar.
2. Add the eggs a little at a time until blended into the mixture.
3. Mix in the flour and bring mixture together to form a ball.
4. Wrap the mixture in cling film, and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
5. Pre-heat the oven to 190C (170C fan), and grease & line two baking sheets.
6. Roll the biscuit mix out on a floured surface, and cut out an even number of circles.
7. Cut a small hole in half of the circles.
8. Bake for 7 minutes until a pale gold colour.  The biscuits will still be soft to the touch.
9. When cool, spread a layer of jam over the non-hole biscuit halves, and top with the whole halves.

And don't forget to enter our competitions!


  1. Tasty Jammy Dodgers! I made some too a couple of years ago, when challenged by Goodtoknow to cook some well-known biscuits. Ours looked non-conformist too, but tasted great

  2. These look great, will definitely be giving these a try this week with my girls.
