I didn't make the filling (didn't have enough jam on hand), but the cookie part turned out great. I dusted it with powdered sugar and gave it away as Christmas gifts. It looked pretty. :)
Just made these this evening for my son and husband coming home from Hurling practice. They were devoured within minutes!! Will definitely be making these delicious treats again (mind you mine didn't look as perfect as your pic but never mind!!) update: made these again, this time left out coconut and added ground almonds, really nice!
These are better than the bought ones!! I found them so easy to make. I used raspberry jam as i find strawberry too sweet! Will be making these again real soon. Thanks for sharing :)
These biscuits are a real harking back to more old-fashioned, pre-1950s, Aussie tucker: genuine Aussie bikkies to enjoy with a cuppa! Except that I’ve never liked tea: always preferred coffee! And I’m not sure how “bikkies” (slang for biscuits) is spelt! I’ve always enjoyed these but I‘ve never had a recipe for them. They’re really easy to make, and quick. I doubled the recipe and filled half with lemon curd: NOT so traditional but I had some lemons I needed to use, and I love lemon curd. So thank you for posting this recipe, Fairy Nuff. Now I can make these whenever I like! I’ve made some to celebrate the beginning of the Zaar Tour of Australia!
Yummy! I doubled the recipe and didn't change a thing.. My entire family loved these! Thank you!
These little gems are wonderful...they taste better with everyday that passes....mummmm we just loved them. Thank you so much for sharing these easy to make, tender, tasty tasty treats Fairy Nuff. I used raspberry jam, didn't know what Caster sugar is so I used icing sugar. It worked great. I will certainly be making these again and again.
