These cookies are classic and will fit in with your morning coffee, afternoon tea or evening get-togethers as finger food!

You can swap out the jam for any other jam like strawberry, or skip out on jam and use peanut butter instead. If you wanted, you could also alternate between jams for each cookie to make an assortment of flavours.

They'll last for around ten days in an airtight at room temperature, but I prefer to keep them in the fridge.

The dough will last for around two to three days in the fridge in case you want to save time while having them freshly baked.

  • 80 grams (1/2 stick plus 1 tbsp) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup or 80 grams caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp or 30 grams milk powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup or 150 grams self raising flour, sifted
  • ⅓ cup or 50 grams custard powder
  • ¼ cup blackberry jam

Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F.
Prepare the baking trays lined with baking sheet.
In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy.
Add the milk powder, vanilla, salt, sifted flour and custard powder to the bowl and mix well.
Using your hands, roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet, spacing them apart to allow room for spreading.
Using a small measuring spoon or using your thumb, press into the centre of each cookie to make an indent.
Fill each hole with a little bit of blackberry jam.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Leave for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    Custard Powder is English - my daughters mother-in-law is bringing me some when she comes for Christmas - I am thinking it is a powder to make Custard - sort of like Jello custard mix.
