Jam biscuits,a buttery ,crumbly biscuits with chewy jam filling is so easy and delicious biscuit recipe that pair well with evening tea.Though we get so many shop bought jammy biscuits with fancy packing ,homemade ones are so delicious and kids would love to help you make them.It’s a happy activity to do together especially during weekends.These biscuits are perfect for kids lunch boxes and for evening tea.
You can choose to fill your jam biscuits with the flavour you like.I just love the bright red hue.Don’t overfill the biscuit with jam for it drizzle out as they bake.The taste and texture of this cookie improves the next day,just melts in your mouth.I also like to serve these jammy cookies warm from the oven with a hot cup of tea.Enjoy the cookies however you like them best.It’s an easy cookie to make and they tastes so great.
