Jammy Dodgers are a biscuit (cookie) from my Scottish childhood

Traditionally they are round with a heart cut in the middle but today I made them into flowers with a center, aren’t these cute?

A Jammy Dodger is basically two shortbread biscuits (cookies) sandwiched together with Jam (Jelly)

340g/12oz Plain All Purpose Flour
