Blogmas Day 4: How to make Jammy Dodgers

Jammy Dodgers take me right back to my childhood. These were a treat in my household and I loved taking these to school in my packed lunch. This Christmas I have decided to make these because I feel like you can give these away as a present in a cute mason jar, or have them out on the table as a snack. They are so easy to make but look so effective and let’s be honest.. who doesn’t like a Jammy Dodger?

How to make Jammy Dodgers

Ingredients for Jammy Dodgers

  • 225g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 125g icing sugar plus extra for dusting
  • 1 x ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium egg yolks
  • 2 medium egg yolks
  • 150g Raspberry Jam


  1. Using an electric whisk, beat the butter and sugar together until pale and softened. Add the vanilla, egg yolks and flour and continue to whisk together to make a soft dough. Wrap in clingfilm for 1–2 hours until firm.
  2. Heat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the dough to the thickness of a pound coin. Using a 7.5cm cutter, stamp out 12 circles. Using a small cutter (try a 2cm circle or a heart or star shape), stamp out the centre of each biscuit. Place on a large, lined baking sheet.
  3. Add any trimmings to the rest of the dough then roll out and use to make a further 12 rounds. Place on a second large, lined baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for 10–12 minutes until pale golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool and firm up on the baking sheets.
  4. Place a large teaspoonful of jam in the centre of the base biscuits and spread out a little. Press on the top biscuits and dust with a little more icing sugar, to serve.
