Valentines 'Jammie Dodger' Biscuit Recipe

   Hey beaut's!

Valentines Day is just a week away so obviously I got back in the kitchen and rustled up another valentines inspired bake, if your after some cupcake inspiration I shared my white chocolate and raspberry cupcake recipe last week which you can find HERE, but today I'm doing the easiest biscuits I think I've ever made, valentines jammie dodgers! I did share my recipe of these biscuits a couple of years ago but I tweaked it slightly and obviously made them heart shaped for valentines!
What You Will Need For The Biscuits
100g unsalted butter, softened
175g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
A jar of strawberry or raspberry jam
love heart cookie cutters
Baking sheets

How To
1. To make the biscuits, cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl until well combined, then add in the egg and vanilla, and continue to beat until fully incorporated. 
2. Tip the flour into the mixture and fold together until fully combined, then shape the dough into a ball and wrap in cling film and pop into the freezer to firm up for around 45 min's to an hour.
3. Once you dough has chilled completely preheat your oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5 and line a couple of large baking trays with baking paper. 
4. On a lightly dusted surface, roll out the dough as thick or as thin as you like and use your a larger love heart cookie cutter to cut out lots of heart shaped biscuits, once you have all of your biscuit hearts your going to want to separate half of them and use a small heart shape cookie cutter to stamp out heart shapes from the middle of your rounds. 
5. Pop the biscuits in the oven until golden, I made my biscuits quite thin so they only took  6-7 minutes but the thicker you go the longer they will take. If you like a nice crunch to your biscuits take them out half way through baking and sprinkle a small amount of caster sugar on them all, I did this and it makes such a nice snappy/crunchy biscuit.
6. Once the biscuits are cool, spread jam on the bottom biscuit and top with one of the heart cut out biscuits, sandwiching them together and voila. These biscuits will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container, that's if they last for 2-3 days because in our house they get demolished pretty quickly he he.
I mean just how cute do these look though, their so quick and easy to make and the ingredients are so minimal too which I love, and adding a sprinkling of caster sugar mid bake really does add such a nice crunch to the biscuits too, yum!

Will you be baking anything this valentines beaut's? I'd love to know!
