Curd and Jam Slices Recipe

Curd and Jam Slices Recipes

Ingredients :

3 oz butter

2 oz caster sugar

6 oz plain flour

1 egg, beaten

jam or lemon curd for filling

Method :

Preheat the oven to 190C Gas Mark 5. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Gradually work in the flour, using enough beaten egg to make a stiff paste. Turn on to a floured surface and knead well. Roll out to an oblong 6 in wide and 1/4 in thick. Divide in half lengthwise, spread one half with jam or lemon curd, keeping the edges clear. Place the other piece of dough on top and pinch the edges to secure them. Brush with beaten egg and lightly mark into fingers with a sharp knife. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown. Carefully cut into fingers and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To make pinwheel biscuits, roll out the dough but do not cut it in half. Spread jam or lemon curd over the dough, then roll up the dough from one long side like a Swiss roll. Chill the dough in the freezer for 30 minutes, then cut the roll into slices. Place on a baking sheet and bake as above.

Makes 12-16
