Why not try?

I wrote this recipe with peanut-butter-and-jam sandwich fans in mind, giving that all-American classic a biscuity twist. Freshly baked, these biscuits are crisp in contrast with their jammy middle; left a couple of days, they become softer and more sandwich-like. Either way, they're irresistible.

This recipe is from Kate's new book Homemade Memories: Childhood Treats with a Twist published by Orion, 2015.

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
In a medium bowl using a wooden spoon, or in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and peanut butter for 1 minute.
2
Add both sugars and beat for a further 2 minutes until fluffy. Add the egg yolk, vanilla and salt and beat until combined, then sift over the flour and mix to form a soft dough. Knead a couple of times until smooth
3
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4
4
Line two baking trays with baking paper
5
On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough to a thickness of 3–4mm. The dough will be quite fragile – if it breaks apart, gently press the crumbly edges back towards the centre, then carefully continue to roll
6
Using a 5cm-biscuit cutter, cut out rounds of dough. Using a heart-shaped stamp, or another small cutter of your choice, cut a hole from the middle of half of the biscuits. Place all the biscuit rounds on the prepared baking trays
7
Bake for 8–12 minutes until lightly golden. Keep a close eye on them – these biscuits can turn from golden to burnt very quickly. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on the trays for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
8
When the biscuits are cool, spread a scant teaspoon of jam on the underside of the whole biscuits. Top each one with a cut-out heart biscuit and press down lightly. The biscuits will keep in an airtight container for 2 days
