    Crumbly Cookies with Jammy Fillings

    • 225g soft butter
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 275g plain four, sifted
    • ½ tsp baking powder, sieved
    • 8 tbsp jam (use a selection such as raspberry and apricot) 

    How to make Crumbly Cookies with Jammy Fillings 
    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment. Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat using an electric whisk or a wooden spoon until pale and fluffy.
    2. Add the vanilla extract and continue beating until well combined. Using a metal spoon, fold in the four and baking powder until the mixture forms a soft dough.
    3. Take a small piece of the dough and roll in your hands to make a ball. Place on the baking tray then repeat to make more balls, leaving a gap between each one. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
    4. Make an imprint into each ball using your finger, deep enough to hold a little jam. Carefully fill each cookie with about ½ teaspoon of jam, making sure you don’t overfill. 
    5. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden brown. Carefully transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before eating.
