Recipe Info

  • Servings : 6
  • Prep Time : 30m
  • Cook Time : 20m
  • Ready In : 50m


  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 200g butter, cut into small cubes
  • 100g icing sugar
  • Pinch of Fine Salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 8 tablespoons apricot jam


Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 170°C.

Step 2

Place the Flour, butter, icing sugar and Fine Salt into a bowl. Using your fingertips, rub the ingredients together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Add the egg yolks and mix until a dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out to a thickness of about 1⁄2cm. Cut out shapes using a 4cm cutter.

Step 4

Divide the biscuit shapes in half. Using a 2cm fluted cutter, make a hole in the middle of half of the biscuits and discard the dough. Place all the biscuits on a baking tray.

Step 5

Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes, or until light golden-brown and crisp. Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Step 6

Using a teaspoon, place a small dollop of apricot jam on each biscuit. Place a biscuit (with a hole) over the bottom biscuit. Repeat the process until biscuits are finished. Sprinkle with extra icing sugar.
