Jammie Dodgers

Posted by on March 3, 2012

Jammie dodger2We were trying out a few photography techniques recently using some digestives as a prop.

Gav said Jammie Dodgers would be good to use, firstly as red is always a plus for him in a photo, but secondly (probably most importantly) he loves them!


So I reckoned I should have a go at making my own. Really simple to make & they taste fab.


Printable recipe here



Jammie Dodgers


125g butter

55g caster sugar

180g plain flour

Jam of your choice

Preheat oven 190 C (fan 170 C)

jammie tea

Cream the butter and sugar together until light & fluffy. Sieve in the flour and mix well, bring together to form a ball of dough. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.

Roll out on a well floured surface to about ½ cm thick. Use cutters, I used hearts & circles. If you have a smaller heart or circle cutter (or something else that will do the job!) use that to cut out on half the biscuits. They look great with a little ‘window’ so you can see the jam.


Place them on greased or lined baking sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes unjamtil cooked through & starting to turn a golden colour.

Allow to cool on a rack.

Spoon onto the complete half a generous helping of jam, then sandwich the window biscuit on top.



They are a bit oozy & sticky but delicious. We did find that the second day they’d stuck a little firmer, so less jam down the chin!

    Hi, made these and mine were huge, hence the bigger heart, oh well. Jam oozed just putting on the top, probably a bit too much.Looking forward to trying them later:)
