Diwali 2014

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

            Yay-yay-yay! I baked these biscuits for the first time and it came out very nice!  My kiddo loves Jam biscuits a lot, I tried this especially for him and after tasting one he said ‘I love this’ !!.Now I can bake cookies confidently as this attempt turned out to be a success!
Jam biscuits
          I saw this recipe at Divine taste blog ,when I was googling images for eggless cookies and got tempted and the recipe sounded pretty simple and I just went ahead and tried it,I dint changed anything,just blindly followed the recipe,as this is my first time,I dint want to take any risksAngel. But I used ready made jam,while she has used her own home made jam.

INGREDIENTS

Maida/All purpose flour 3/4 cup
Vanilla custard powder 3/4 cup
Corn flour 4 tblsp
Butter 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar 1/2 cup
Curd 3 tblsps
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Jam(any kind) I used mango 2 tblsps

 

Jam biscuits

Method:

  1. Soften butter and beat it until frothy along with powdered sugar and the essence.
    Beat butter,sugar,essence
  2. Add the flours and curd.
  3. flour,curd
  4. and make it into a smooth dough.
    dough
  5. 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.
  6. Use cookie cutter of any shape and cut out the shapes. use the remaining dough and repeat the process.
    spread and cut
  7. Arrange these biscuits in a baking tray lined properly(I used aluminium foil).
  8. 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.
    Make dents and fill the jam
  9. 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)
  10. Just fill a drop to cover the dent we have made in the biscuits..
  11. Pre- heat oven at 180degrees C and bake the biscuits  for 12 – 15 minutes(mine took 15 minutes) or until done.
  12. After cool down store in airtight containers and enjoy the home made Jam biscuits!

  19. Sailaja,custard powder is nothing but vanilla essence+colour+corn flour... I am not sure what pudding flour ingredients,if its same,then sure can use,if it has sugar in it,then you have to adjust the sugar quantity accordingly ... :)

  68. Hi i tried this one and it turned out really well. I was really happy about it. I have a small doubt, can you please tell me what does half cup butter mean how many grams is it approximately. Can you please tell that.

    ReplyDelete
  69. 1/2 cup butter is 113gm I think

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi, this was a really nice recipe. Can you please guide me with substitutions if I want to make a chocolate version uising cocoa powder?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Can you please suggest the substitutions if I were to make a chocolate version using cocoa powder. This was really nice biscuit recipe, definitely a keeper

    ReplyDelete
  72. You can use 2 tblsp cocoa power in place of corn flour. Reduc corn flour to 2 tablespoon as well. Just a guess. Should come out good.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Very nice..tempting ..gonna try soon..

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hi raks,
    Have a doubt..Whenever u call for butter in a recipe, should we take it as unsalted butter or can we use salted also..Because I'll take something named butter while purchasing, never worrying whether its salted or unsalted..Which is good to use??

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hey raks,
    I tried this y'day..Tasted good. But it was little chewy in texture in the area where the jam has been kept... Thank you ..Hope, for me, the next time it would turn even more good :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey..Raks...
