  • Corn flour - 4 tbsp
  • Butter - 1/2 cup (100 gms)

Eggless Hearty Jam Biscuits Recipe
Method:
  1. Mix maida, cornflour and custard powder, keep aside.Soft butter, add sugar to it and cream well. Then add curd, vanilla essence and beat well until creamy.

  2. Then add custard powder mixture to the butter sugar mixture and make it to soft dough. If your dough is sticky add little maida to make it a soft pilable dough.

  3. Roll the dough on a flat surface using chapathi roller for about 5mm thickness. Then cut out shapes using cookie cutter. Collect the remaining dough and repeat the process.

  4. Eggless Hearty Jam Biscuits RecipePreheat oven to 180 deg C for 10mins. Meanwhile make a small dent in the middle of all the biscuits using a small round lid and apply a very thin layer of jam in it.Arrange it in a baking tray with aluminium foil lined.

  5. Bake it for 12-15mins at 180 deg C. Allow it to cool and store them in airtight container.

My Notes:
  • As I reduced the butter and replaced it with curd, the biscuits slightly puffed up, oozing out jam. So in the next batch I applied a very thin layer of jam.So dont add more jam it will surely ooze out.

  • Though the butter is reduced, the crispness is perfect. The only difference I found with reducing butter was that the biscuits started to soften after 3 days. I'm sure it will stay crispy for more time when the orginal mentioned quantity of butter is added.

  • I used mixed fruit jam, you can use your favorite flavour of jam. But mixed fruit went well with the custard powder flavour.

I am sure this is a kid pleaser as my lil one enjoyed it to the core. Though she first licked only the jam, later she liked the taste of the biscuits too.

  14. Lovely biscuits for the occasion. The hearts looks cute and tempting. I generally love jam in biscuits since they are kind of hard and chewy. Jam in your biscuit is tempting me now :)

    Wish you a happy valentines day :)

  44. Hi, wonderful recipe!

    Just one doubt..we should mix the maida, cornflour and custard powder or sieve them together?

    ReplyDelete
  45. @ramneek : It is not really necessary to sieve just mixing is enough....

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi! My 7 year old is not a big fan of custard powder and will probably lick the jam and refuse to try the biscuit..can I replace it with a combination of maida and sugar..and if so , what propotion should it be?

    And thanks so much for this recipe....will eventually tru with custard powder if I do not hear back, anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. @AR : I am really not sure of the exact proportion but you can try with the same proportion itself may be with a little extra butter to form the dough

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi ! I tried baking the biscuits, but they turned to be too soft and had a uncooked taste even after baking them for a long time..any idea what could be wrong ? does it depend on the quantity of butter ? should we consider the quantity after melting the butter or before ?

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Geetanjalai : Butter should be measured just at room temperature...not sure where it went wrong..did you try baking for some more time as each oven varies with time may give 3-5mins extra?

    ReplyDelete
  50. thanks for the response. Ya, I tried baking for a longer time, even changed the racks from lower to higher rack for different batches..but it simply didn't work..what should be the consistency of the dough ? should it be hard or soft ? can I try adding baking powder ? will that make any difference ?

    ReplyDelete
  51. @Geetanjali : Yes the dough should be very soft....not sure of the outcome if baking powder is added.

    ReplyDelete
  52. hi,

    ReplyDelete
  53. @Phani : Usually cookies becomes hard if overbaked....or if butter is reduced..not sure what went wrong for u...
