Ingredients

  • 100 g 1cup carrot
  • 200 g 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 125 g 1 cup powdered icing sugar
  • 2 eggs yolks only
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300 g 3 cups plain flour
  • Jam to serve (I used carrot jam, but apricot, strawberry or any other jam works well)
  • Extra powdered icing sugar for dusting

Instructions

  • Peel and grate the carrot, set aside.
  • Cream the butter and icing sugar together, with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks and vanilla and mix to combine well.
  • Mix in the grated carrot and flour until it makes a soft dough.
  • Chill the dough, wrapped in clingfilm, in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Heat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about half a centimeter thick.
  • Cut out rounds with a cutter about 8cm across. For half of the rounds, cut another, smaller shape in the middle to form a window.
  • Re-roll any trimmings and make an equal amount of plain and windowed biscuits.
  • Place the biscuits on the baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Allow the biscuits to cool on the tray.
  • Sandwich a small dollop of jam between the plain and windowed biscuits and then dust with sieved powdered icing sugar.
