Soften butter and beat it until frothy along with powdered sugar and the essence.
Add all purpose flour, custard powder, corn flour and curd.
Make it into a smooth dough.
Spread the dough in a flat surface using a rolling pin for about 5 mm thickness. You can see the image for reference, the biscuit wont rise much, so you can roll to the same thickness you want.
Use cookie cutter of any shape and cut out the shapes. use the remaining dough and repeat the process.
Arrange these biscuits in a baking tray linedwith butter paper (I used aluminium foil).
I used the essence bottle’s lid for making a dent at the centre to fill the jam.
Just a very very shallow dent. You can use your thumb too.
I just melted(made it loose) the jam in a small pan.(take care not to heat it too much, just when it starts to get warm, remove from fire)
Just fill a drop to cover the dent we have made in the biscuits.
Pre- heat oven at 180degrees C and bake the biscuits for 12 – 15 minutes(mine took 15 minutes) or until done.
After cool down store in airtight containers and enjoy the home made Jam biscuits!
