Oven 180 C 350 F Gas mark 4
- A greased or lined baking sheet
- 8 oz Self Raising flour
- 4 oz butter
- a pinch of salt
- 2 oz caster sugar
- 1 egg and milk if required ( my egg was large so I did not need the milk)
- About 3 tablespoons of jam (your choice)
- Caster sugar for dredging
Put the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs then stir in the sugar. Mix to a stiff dough with the egg and milk if required and turn out onto a floured worktop.
Divide the dough in half and roll both halves out to the same thickness and a nice rectangle.
Place one piece of dough onto the sheet and spread warmed jam over then cover with the other piece of dough. Pinch the edges together fork over the top and dredge with caster sugar.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until it is golden brown. Cool in the tin then turn out onto a wire rack and when cool cut into squares or triangles and enjoy. – JAB
