Proust may have had hismadeleinesbut, if you are British, nothings brings back memories faster than a biting into aJammie Dodger… other than having a slice of my Retro School Cake ;).

There’s something so nostalgic about these simple shortbread biscuits sandwiched together with jam. And right now I am ALL about riding that nostalgic baking wave (case in point? Pineapple Upside Down Cake).

When it comes to baking I am a firm believer that homemade is best and these Jammie Dodgers are significantly fresher and tastier than their shop-bought counterparts.

Making a batch of Jammie Dodgers is very easy – and if you have these Dexam Classic British Biscuit Cuttersthey will definitely LOOK the part too.

But you don’t HAVE to have use these cutters of course, any cutter will work as long as you cut a little window in half of your biscuits so that the jam shows through. These Linzer Cookie cutters give you a few options!

If you are using the Dexam cutter make sure you press down hard to create the impression of the pattern.

You need to do this on both the biscuits with heart cut out AND the ones without, as the pressing down action makes the biscuit spread.

This kid-friendly recipe was greeted with much excitement in our house… all I can say is best make a double batch.

You can use the same basic biscuit dough recipe to create custard creams and iced rings if you like.

STEP 3 Roll out the dough and use the cutters to cut out the biscuits. If you are using the Dexam Jammie Dodger cutter, press down with some force to impress the design. Cut out heart shapes in the middle of half the biscuits.

  • Repeat until you have used up all the dough, gathering any scraps and rolling out again. Cut a central hole using a heart shaped cutter (or any shape you like) on half the biscuits.

  • Place on the prepared trays, spaced slightly apart. Bake for 9-10 minutes – keep an eye on the biscuits and remove from the oven when the edges just start to colour.

  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Fill the jammie dodgers with a little seedless raspberry jam and sandwich together.
