    1. Preheat oven to 200C. Grease baking trays.
    2. Sift the flour into a bowl and rub in the butter. Mix in the sugar and ground almond. Using a fork, mix in the egg until dough becomes stiff.
    3. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough into a thin layer and cut into 5cm rounds (alternatively, cut into rectangles). Re-roll trimmings and cut until you have 20 rounds. Place rounds on baking trays.
    4. Bake for 12 minutes or until light brown. Cool on tray for 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
    5. Spread half of the cookies with a thin layer of jam. Sandwich together with remaining cookies. Dust with icing sugar.

    I was very disappointed with this recipe. The cookies have a taste an texture like sawdust. They are too dry and are flavourless. I will not be putting these on my Christmas cookie tray.  -  21 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are great-- they taste just like biscuits that I had at Hampton Court Palace. Thanks a million!  -  07 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
