• 115 g unsalted English butter by Sainsbury's, softened
  • 55 g Fairtrade golden caster sugar by Sainsbury's
  • 180 g British plain flour by Sainsbury's
  • 2 tbsp semi-skimmed milk
  • 70 g strawberry jam by Sainsbury's


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

  2. 2

    Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat them together with a wooden spoon until the mixture is pale and creamy.

  3. 3

    Tip the flour into the bowl, add the milk and mix until a dough forms.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle a little flour over the table and a rolling pin. Split the dough into 4 pieces.

  5. 5

    Roll out one piece of the dough until it’s about the same thickness as a pound coin. Using a Christmas-themed biscuit cutter, cut 2 biscuits from the dough. Then, using a small round cutter, cut a circle from the centre of one biscuit. Repeat, using any different cutters that you like. You should have 24 cut biscuits.

  6. 6

    Bake for about 10-12 minutes – the biscuits should be just starting to turn golden around the edges.

  7. 7

    Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

  8. 8

    When cooled, spoon a teaspoon of jam on to each of the biscuits that don’t have holes in them, then top with those that do. Press down gently to create a sandwich.
