  • Shape the dough into a smooth ball, wrap in cling film, and chill in the fridge for 8 hours.
  • Remove dough from refrigerator 20 minutes before using and preheat the oven to 190C, 375F, gas mark 5.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thick; cut into circles using a 3-inch biscuit cutter.
  • Place a small spoonful of jam in centre of each circle, moisten edges with water then fold over to form a half circle and press the edges together.

  • Remove from the oven and immediately roll in the cinnamon sugar.
