I know I know I sound like a stalker..and I am..I can't tell you how many recipes I make from Marie and they all turn out divinely our cup of tea..
These literally melt in your mouth..
Like a Ritz Carlton Nutri Grain Bar..?:) No comparison..buttery..rich..a galette..You get what I mean?
They just look like a cup of tea.. or coffee..and a pause~café...
Packed in a picnic by the sea..they would be scrumptious..I've missed the sea the last few summers..This one was no exception..Is there anything like it?
I would have picked up an Anthony Bourdain grey hoodie written Provincetown..would have visited the beaches..the Christmas Tree Shops.. driven route 6A..mouth wide open..It's such a pretty pretty state the state of Mass..I love the Cape..Walking the beaches..visiting the towns..Martha's Vineyard,Nantucket,Chatham,Craigville,Osterville..Ptown..etc..
So ....I watched the Summer of '42 instead .
Her words exactly~
A deliciously buttery teatime treat, just stogged full of raspberry jam!
225g of self raising flour (a scant 2 cups)
1 tsp baking powder
75g of butter (a scant 1/3 cup)
75g of caster sugar (a scant 1/2 cup)
1 large free range egg, lightly beaten
a little milk
a little extra milk
a little extra sugar
Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Butter a large baking tray. Set aside.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Drop in the butter and then rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips, rubbing until the mixture resembles dry bread crumbs. Stir in the sugar. Beat the egg and stir it into the flour mixture with a fork, along with just enough milk to make a soft dough. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Flatten the ball and place a dab of jam in the middle of each. Bring the edges of the dough up around the jam to cover it completely enclosing it. Flatten slightly and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Brush each with a bit of milk and sprinkle with more sugar.
Bake in the heated oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Scoop off onto a wire rack to cool. Cool completely before tucking in as hot jam can really give you a nasty burn!
Plse don't use the Printable recipe button..I don't know how to add that to my blog..one day I will..
So..again..these are excellent..Thanks Marie~
You can use Raspberry Jam.. Cassis Gelée..Marmalade..Dulche De Leche..I may try w/ my Pâte de Spéculoos..
I think I will be making these for the rest of my life they are so perfect♥
