The final letter in my logo! and time for more baking. Again I wanted to make miniature treats to form my letter G.
This is a take on my childhood favourites Jammy Dodgers, yum!
250g plain flour
100g castor sugar
For the filling
200g icing sugar
I mixed the 175g of butter and 250g of plain flour in the food mixer.
I then grated the zest of the lemon. I love this little grater it is so handy and stores all the zingy zest in its little container!
I added the sugar, lemon zest and half of the lemon juice and gave the mixture a quick blitz.
I then added the yolk of the egg to the mixture, making sure it was blended in.
The mixture then needs to be placed in the fridge for at least thirty minutes. Wrap in a small food bag or cling film.
Preheat the oven to 160 °C (Fan oven)
Now the fun bit! Roll out the dough on a floured surface, make the dough fairly thin mine was roughly 2mm deep. I used a small cookie cutter about 5cm in diameter but you can make yours whatever size and shape you want.
My little cheese knife is the perfect tool for lifting the individual shapes onto a baking parchment lined tray.
As the biscuit has a top and a bottom make the same amount of each.
I used a small metal piping nozzle to make the jammy centre for my biscuit. I had to tease some of the centres out with a wooden cocktail stick!
Ta dah! Lots of flower tops! Now bake in the oven for about 8 mins. But keep an eye on them they should be a pale golden colour, but don’t worry if a few are slightly darker as icing sugar can hide a lot!
Once they are cooked leaved to cool on a wire rack.
Once the biscuits are fully cooled dust the top of the biscuit with a sprinkle of icing sugar. I love this as it makes my kitchen top look like a snowy garden!
I filled a plastic disposable piping bag with some of my home made apple, damson and blackberry jam. I snipped off the bottom of the piping bag and placed a dot of jammy goodness into the centre of the bottom biscuit.
Lots of Jammy Flowers!
I made the butter icing by mixing 80g of soft butter, 200g icing sugar and 1tsp of lemon juice.
Again using a piping bag I placed a dot of icing onto each petal. Then add the icing sugar top of the biscuit and GENTLY push the biscuits together. Careful not to snap the top biscuit. If you want more jam in the centre of your biscuit now is the time to add it!
There you go a yummy plate of jammy flowers!! I feel a cup of tea is needed…..
And my final letter is complete!!!
The only thing I needed to do was cut out the & from some lovely spotty plastic fabric! All done. Now to construct the logo with the help of my tech savvy friend Jo!
