Plum Jam Shortbread Sandwiches

Preparation time: 20 minutes plus time to chill in fridge
Cooking time: 15/20 minutes
Makes: 10 biscuits


  • For the shortbread
  • 125g butter
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 180g plain flour
  • Caster sugar, to sprinkle

For the filling

  • A jar of Mammy Jamia’s Plum Preserve
  • 175g icing sugar
  • 75g unsealed butter
  • Few drops of vanilla extract


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and soft. Sift in the flour and salt into the creamed mixture and stir in using a wooden spoon until the mixture is like breadcrumbs.
  2. Gather the dough together with your hands and knead until it forms a ball. Wrap the ball in cling film and chill in the fridge until firm
  3. Remove the cling film and roll out until it’s about 5mm in thickness and then cut into 20 equal squares.
  4. Bake the shortbread in the oven at 190C/Gas Mark 5 for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are a light golden brown
  5. While the shortbread is in the oven make up the butter icing by creaming together the butter and icing sugar and then add a few drops of vanilla extract.
  6. Once the shortbread is cooled add a spoonful of Plum Preserve onto 10 and spread the other 10 with butter icing and then sandwich each together.
