Empire Biscuits

225g (9oz) plain flour
75g (3oz) caster sugar
150g (6oz) butter


Mix flour & sugar in a bowl, rub in the butter.
Knead well to form a smooth paste.
Roll out to about 1/4(quarter)inch thickness and cut out round shapes with pastry cutters.
Place on a greased baking tray.
Cook in a slow 300 - 325 deg oven (electric) or 250 - 325 deg (gas) for about 30 minutes.
Once cooled, join 2 together with strawberry or raspberry jam. Decorate top with icing & half a cherry.

Recipe is basically a shortbread recipe and a slow oven is necessary so the biscuits cook firm & don't crumble.
