Thank you bibbyskitchenat36.com for this awesome recipe, so looking forward to trying it out!

Makes about 36 (sandwiched)

  • 200g butter, room temperature
  • 160g Natura Sugars golden castor sugar
  • 5ml (1tsp) vanilla extract
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 380g cake wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup berry jam

 

  1. Cream the butter and castor sugar together. Add the vanilla, whole egg and extra yolk. Beat until light and fluffy.
  2. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and spices together. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and mix until the dough comes together.
  3. Turn onto a floured board and press together lightly. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least an hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.
  5. Roll the dough out on floured board to a 3mm thickness. Cut out as many cookie rounds possible. Arrange half the rounds on one baking sheet. This will form the base.
  6. To make the tops, press out a centre shape with a smaller cookie shape. Place the cut-outs on the second tray. Transfer both trays to the fridge and chill for about 30 minutes. Bake for 12-14 minutes until slightly golden and crisp. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. Dust the cut-outs with icing sugar. Sandwich the base and tops together with a scant teaspoon of jam.
