Jam creams

Jam creams



  • 125g butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 75g butter, softened (additional)
  • 1 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • raspberry jam (or whatever you have on hand)


Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line a biscuit tray with baking paper and set aside.

In a bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg until well combined and then fold through the cinnamon and self-raising flour. Roll the biscuit mixture into little balls, about a teaspoonful each, and then place on prepared baking tray. Squish down a little with the prongs of a fork.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

Meanwhile beat the additional butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. Spoon a small amount of the buttercream on one biscuit, spread a little jam on top of that (don’t go overboard here or it will spill everywhere) and then top with another biscuit about the same size.

Makes about a dozen.


  • These delicious biscuits never last long at my place and I often double the recipe to have some “leftovers”.
