Py-Jammy Dodgers Recipe from Teen Granny!

Hello! My name is Scarlett and I have a blog called Teen Granny. Did You Make That is one of my all time favourite blogs and to celebrate Karen’s amazing Pyjama Party I have a scrummy recipe for some delicious py-jammy dodgers.

Although there are a few steps involved in the recipe it’s really extremely easy and will be the perfect treat to celebrate your brand new pyjamas. Plus everyone knows the finishing touch to any good pair of pyjamas is a nice big splodge of jam…

You Will Need:

  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 140g icing sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 375g plain flour plus more for rolling
  • a pinch of salt
  • Your favourite seedless jam (I used raspberry)
  • Scallop edged cookie cutter (or just a plain circle)
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter
  • Rolling pin


1. Cut the butter into cubes to make it easier to cream. Cream together the butter and icing sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

2. LISTEN! Before you stupidly add the entire egg because you forgot to read the instructions like I did the first time I tried this recipe, please notice that you only need to add the egg YOLK. Okay, I’m glad we cleared that up. Now add the egg yolk and the vanilla extract and cream together until blended.

3. Mix in the flour and the salt, by now you should have a pretty firm mixture.

4. Using your hands, roll the dough into a ball and wrap it in cling film. Leave it in the fridge for about 20 minutes. While the dough is chilling, pre-heat the oven to 190°C.

5. Flour your surface and your rolling pin and carefully roll the dough out to a thickness of about 3-4mm.

6. Cut circles out of your dough using either a scalloped cookie cutter or just a plain circle. Place your circles onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

7. Once they are on the baking sheet use a smaller cookie cutter to cut hearts out of the middle of HALF of the circles. Leave the other half whole, as these will be the bases of your cookies.

8. Put your biscuits in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and carefully transfer to a wire cooling rack.

9. In a small saucepan, heat your jam until it has a turned runny and then wait for the jam and biscuits to cool.

10. Line the underside of the whole circle biscuits with your jam and then carefully sandwich a biscuit with a heart cut out on top.

11. Cuddle up in your new pyjamas and enjoy your lovely py-jammy dodger!

Note from Ed: Isn’t Teen Granny amazingly brilliant? This is a teenage girl with school commitments, who just happens to do this in her spare time. Someone give this girl a book contract!

    Oh, and I second the vote for a book deal. Teen Granny is, well, amazing! I wish I had her confidence and ability when I was a teen. As a 30 year old I’m still well within her shadow!

  8. They look very pretty. I’ve got this recipe in my Peyton and Byrne book but its not one I’ve made because I’m not a huge fan of jam. I have made other (dark chocolate and coffee based) ones though!

  9. These are definately on my must try list, amazing Teen Granny!
