I found this suggested on a New Zealand recipe forum when I was searching for recipes to use up some jelly crystals. My girls had a lot of fun making their *blue* biscuits and now have plans to make *green* ones!!! Great for a rainy school holiday day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Cream the butter, jelly crystals and sugar together in a mixer.
  3. Add egg and beat well.
  4. Add the sifted flour and baking powder and mix until well combined.
  5. Place in teaspoonful sizes on a oven tray. Flatten slightly with a fork.
  6. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes.

Uber easy biscuit and really tasty. Think next time I wont use fan bake because they were a bit too crisp and a little brown. Will be trying again for sure!

Good biscuit, easy to make. Used pineapple and orange jelly because I didn't have two matching jellies. Liked how they were slightly chewy, just slightly on the day of making. Will try again. Thank you for sharing.
