Round shortbread-style biscuits sandwiched together with jam then iced with a cherry on top. A nice traditional morning tea treat.


Serves: 48 

  • 500g butter
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 4 cups (500g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (280g) raspberry jam
  • 24 glace cherries
  • 8 cups (1 kg) icing sugar
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour until well blended. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 cm thickness. Cut using a round biscuit cutter.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow the bisuits to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before cooling on wire rack to cool. Spread one teaspoon of jam between two biscuits and sandwich together. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
  4. In a medium bowl, gradually stir the milk into the icing sugar until the icing is spreadable. Ice the top of the sandwiched biscuits. Top each one with half of a cherry while the icing is still wet.
