Red nosed biscuits

How about baking some of these this Red Nose Day; you can help to raise funds for Comic Relief by selling them to friends and family and have some family fun in the process! They are simple and quick to make and rather delicious too.
You can even add funny faces to them with chocolate...


 Ingredients
6oz butter
9oz plain flour
4 1\2 oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk
Jam to fill
Chocolate to decorate



Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Combine the flour and butter together in a bowl.
Add the sugar and egg yolk and mix well to create a soft dough.
Split the dough in half and roll each out on a floured work surface to around 4mm thick.


Cut out 14 circles from each half (5cm/2" cutter)
For half of the dough cut a circle out from the centre of each round (we used a piping nozzle to do so).
Cook all 28 rounds for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.
Allow to cool.
Put jam on the complete rounds and add a round with a hole in the centre on top.


Add a little more jam in the hole.
Decorate with chocolate to create some funny faces if you wish. We used Nutella in a piping bag.
Scoff!!
