Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for dusting
  • 1 cup butter chilled and cubed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ​¼ cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • seedless raspberry jam
  • powdered sugar to dusting

Instructions

  • Put the flour and butter in a food processor and pulse until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add in the sugars and salt, and pulse again.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the vanilla and egg yolks, then add to the processor and pulse to just bring the dough together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead to bring the dough together.
  • Form into 2 flat rounds, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375F/190C
  • Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of dough rounds to the thickness of about a 1/4 inch. Using a cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place them on one baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, until just firm and lightly golden. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then move to a rack to cool completely.
  • Roll out the other piece of dough and cut out the same number shapes and then with a smaller cookie cutter, cut the middles from them. Put on the second baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, until just firm and lightly golden. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then move to a rack to cool completely.
  • Once all the cookies are cool, spread the first batch with the jam. Sprinkle the second batch with powdered sugar, then sandwich on top of the first batch.
  • Once filled, eat the same day, once filled.
  • Unfilled biscuits will keep for a couple of days in an airtight container.
