    These sandwich biscuits are ideal for Christmas but they're good anytime. Use your favourite jam in the centre.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 175g butter, softened
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 300g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 6 tablespoons strawberry jam
    • 1/4 cup green decorating sugar (optional)

    Directions
    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:53min 

    1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into the butter mixture until well blended. Refrigerate dough for three hours.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease several baking trays.
    3. On a floured surface, roll out 1/2 of the dough at a time to a .25cm thickness. Cut dough into star shapes using a large star biscuit cutter. Using a smaller star biscuit cutter, cut a star into the centre of 1/2 of the big stars. Sprinkle coloured sugar on the biscuits with the centre cut out if desired. Put onto prepared baking trays about 2 to 3cm apart, and bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
    4. After biscuits cool completely, spread 1 teaspoon of jam in the centre of each biscuit that does not have a star cut out in the middle. Place a biscuit with a cut-out on top of the layer of jam. Pack biscuits in a covered tin to preserve freshness.

    A good recipe taste-wise but the dough was too moist to roll out. Had to add a lot of flour and still wasn't able to roll it out thin enough to liking. - 18 Dec 2009
