Snap, Sizzle & Cook

Sharing my love of food

Basic cookie dough

This versatile dough can be used to make all different types of butter biscuits.  I decided to make Jam Sandwich Hearts.

Basic Cookie Dough:
180g butter
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 large egg plus 1 yolk
Pinch of salt
2 ½ cups flour
Cream butter and sugar and stir though eggs.  Sift in salt and flour.  Mix well and shape into dough ball.  Cover in gladwrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Roll out with a rolling pin and cut with desired cookie cutters.  I used hearts and filled the centre with jam.

Make the Jam as follows:
Mix ½ cup of strawberry jam with 5ml gelatine (as per pack instructions).
