Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g unsalted butter, softened
250g caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch salt
1 large egg
500g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
icing sugar, for dusting
350g peggy’s mulled wine jam or any other good-quality spiced berry jam

Equipment

Quantity Ingredient
Basic baking kit
one large and one small star cookie cutter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. To make the biscuits

    Place the butter, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl and cream together until smooth and creamy in texture.
  3. Beat the egg lightly in another bowl and slowly add to the butter mixture while whisking until well incorporated.
  4. Sift in the flour and mix until the dough just comes together. Gather the dough into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes or until the dough feels firm and cool.
  5. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead briefly.
  6. Roll out the dough to a thickness of approximately 3–4mm. Using a large star cookie cutter, cut out 30 star shapes and place them onto the prepared baking tray.
  7. Using a small star cookie cutter, cut the centres from 15 of the star shapes. You can re-use the cut-out dough to make a few more stars. Chill again for 30 minutes or until cool and firm.
  8. Bake for 6 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  9. Once the biscuits are baked, let them rest for about 30 minutes outside of the oven.
  10. To assemble the biscuits

    Gently heat the jam in a saucepan until smooth. Spread one teaspoonful of jam evenly over the whole stars.
  11. Lightly dust the hollow stars with icing sugar and place one on top of each of the whole stars spread with jam.
