A favourite treat for morning or afternoon tea - try making your own jam & adding a tablespoon of rosewater to the jam to really take it to the next level!!
130g butter, softened
1ts vanilla extract
300g plain flour
3tsp baking powder
Homemade raspberry jam
150g icing sugar
2 drops pink food colour or 1 tsp beetroot powder
2tbs boiling water
hundreds & thousands, optional to decorate
Add butter, sugar & vanilla extract, insert the butterfly into the TM bowl & mix for 30 secs on speed 4. You may need to scrape down the bowl half way through. Keep the butterfly spinning on speed 4 as you add each egg & you may need to stop & scrape down the bowl again.
Add the flour & baking powder & mix for 5 - 10 secs speed 4 with or with out the butterfly. Rest dough in the fridge so it is cool enough to work with. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees. Roll out dough onto the Thermomat sprinkled with a little extra flour & use a round cookie cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes. Place them onto baking trays lined with baking paper. Bake for 8 -12 mins until cooked but not too brown. Allow to cool, then sandwich together with raspberry jam in the middle, you can just dust with icing sugar or mix icing sugar, extra 30g butter with food colouring & boiling water on speed 6 for 5 secs. Then spread on top of the biscuits & sprinkle with hundreds & thousands (if using).
