Jammie Bodgers Recipe Card


The cuisine of The United States is a rich amalgamation of peoples, religions and cultures thanks to the immigrants from different parts of the world.  They brought with them their local ingredients as well as cooking styles with them.  Yet amidst all these varieties Chinese and Italian cuisines dominate.  
During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Americans developed a number of new foods.  What characterised the American cuisine is the adaptation of a fusion of multiple ethnic cooking styles. During this period food production and presentation became more industrialised.

Ingredients for Jammie Bodgers Recipe

  • Refined flour 2 cups

  • Frozon Butter chopped 125 grams

  • Castor sugar (caster sugar) 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon

  • Egg lightly beaten 1

  • Vanilla essence 1 teaspoon

  • For filling

  • Strawberry jam 4-5 tablespoons

  • Unsalted butter softened 50 grams

  • Icing sugar 1/2 cup


Step 1

Sift the flour into a bowl and rub the butter with your fingertips. Add the sugar, egg and vanilla essence and mix into a soft dough. Knead the dough gently on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

Step 2

Grease two baking trays. Roll out the dough thinly on a lightly floured surface and cut into rounds with a two-and-a-half inch cutter. Re-roll the trimmings and cut into more rounds. You should get around thirty rounds. Place fifteen rounds on a baking tray.

Step 3

With a small three-fourth inch heart-shaped cookie cutter cut out the centres of the remaining rounds. Place the cut-out rounds on the second baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for about twelve minutes or until pale golden.

Step 4

Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. For the filling, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Spread the butter cream evenly on the whole cookies.

Step 5

Spoon a little jam over the butter cream, place the cut-out cookies on top, pressing gently so that the jam fills the heart-shaped space.
