Ingredients
 

For the biscuits

  • 175 g salted butter
  • pinch salt
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • 260 g plain flour

For the jam filling

  • 170 g seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 gelatine sheets (about 3.5g), soaked in cold water

For the buttercream (optional)

  • 150 g icing sugar
  • 100 g salted butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Place the butter, salt and caster sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until just soft. Add the egg yolk and flour, and mix to a stiff dough. Remove from the bowl and flatten out, then wrap in cling film and chill well until needed.
  • Preheat the oven to 20. Gas 6. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough to about 4mm thickness, then use a 6cm fluted cutter to cut out circles. Next, using a small (about 2cm x 2cm) heart-shaped cutter, cut out hearts from the centre of half the biscuits.
  • Cook on baking parchment for 10-15 minutes until lightly coloured and set.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and straight away carefully use the same cutters to re-trim the biscuit outlines and heart shapes. Leave to cool for 15 minutes before you attempt to remove the shortbread from the tray as they are very fragile while warm.
  • Gently heat the jam in a small pan, then whisk in the softened gelatine until dissolved. Leave to cool.
  • If adding buttercream. Gradually whisk the icing sugar into the butter until smooth and creamy. Next, stir through the vanilla extract.

To assemble the biscuits

  • If you are adding buttercream to your biscuits. Pipe a 1cm border of buttercream on the bottom biscuits about 5mm from the edge. Spoon or pipe the jam in the centre of the bottom biscuits and then top with the remaining biscuits.
