The kids absolutely love Jammie Dodgers but will eat a whole packet in one go if I’m not keeping a close eye on them! So when we were deciding what to bake for this week’s snacks we thought we’d give a homemade Jammie Dodgers recipe a go. I’d much rather the kids eat homemade goodies instead shop bought as I know exactly what ingredients go into them, yes they do contain sugar but only a small amount compared to most cookies!

  2. Wrap in clingfilm & put in the fridge until firm
  3. Roll out the dough & use a 4" cutter to cut out the cookies.
  4. I used a heart cutter for the centre but you you could use any smaller shape or cutter
  5. Bake on a lined baking tray at 175c or gas mark 4 for 8-10 mins
