Fig Royal Sandwich Biscuits

April 22, 2013

Wonderful Jam

My partner is a fan of victoria sponges and I wanted to make him a special biscuit based on one.  Rather than using a traditional jam I used a Fig Royal jam.  It tasted really lovely and unique I didn’t want to pair it with a biscuit that ruined the flavour.  I made a simple biscuit to sandwich the jam.  Now that I have started with the basics I am sure I can do more great things with the jam.  I have been told that fig royal jam can be brought from most major supermarkets in England.

This recipe was adapted from Asda Magazine (February, 2013).



115g butter, 55g caster sugar, few drops of vanilla extract, 150g plain flour, 25g cornflour, fig royal jam.



1. Mix the butter and caster sugar.
2. Add the vanilla extract.
3. Sift in the flour and cornflour.
4. Wrap in cling film and chill for about 30 minutes.
5. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
6. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into biscuit shapes of your choice.
7. When the shapes are made place on baking paper on a baking tray.
8. Bake for 12 minutes.
9. Cool on a wire rack.
10. When cool sandwich with the jam.
