Decorating Tips: For a festive look, dust the top cookies (those with cut out centers) with powdered sugar before assembling. This adds a beautiful snow effect and enhances the visual appeal. If you're feeling adventurous, try using different shapes for the cutouts, like stars or hearts, depending on the occasion.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan) or 190°C (conventional).
  2. Mix all the ingredients to form a soft and uniform dough. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough and cut it into rounds. Dust the surface and rolling pin with flour if necessary to prevent sticking.
  4. Place the rounds on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Cut smaller circles in half of the rounds.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the edges begin to brown. Remove from oven while still soft; they will firm up as they cool.
  6. Once cooled, sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar. Place a spoonful of jam on the full biscuits and top with sprinkled biscuits.
