RECIPE: Jammy thumbprint biscuits

There is nothing better than tea and biscuits on a Sunday afternoon... and that jammy goodness adds such decadance!  With Christmas coming up, pop them in a glass jar with a ribbon as a  tastey gift! They are so quick and easy to make....






















Jammy Thumbprint biscuits
makes about 30


Ingredients:
2 sticks butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 cups flour
 jam (I used half lemon marmalade and half rasberrylicious)

















First, leave the butter out to soften to room temperature. Preheat oven to 175C/ 350F.
Cream the vanilla into the butter. Then add the icing sugar and cream it in too. Once it is well mixed, add the flour a little at a time and mix in. Stir until the dough has a smooth consistency.








Roll the dough into little balls. Place the balls on an ungreased cookie sheet about two inches apart. Press your thumb into the center of each cookie, squishing it a bit and making a little well in the middle. (Do not press all the way through the ball, though!) Spoon a dab of  jam into each thumbprint.
 

Bake on for 15 minutes, or until just barely starting to brown at the edges. Let cool on the pan for a minute, then transfer to a rack to cool to room temperature. They will keep if you store them in an airtight container.
