Makes 18 | 1 hour

For the biscuits:

  • 300g Plain flour
  • 170g Unsalted butter
  • 115g Caster sugar
  • ½ Tsp salt
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla bean paste
  • 1 Medium egg

For the jam:

  • 380g Fresh Strawberries, cleaned
  • 180g Jam sugar (pectin based)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla bean paste 
  • ½ Tsp salt

To make the biscuits:

  1. Rub together the flour and butter by hand until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Add in the sugar, salt and vanilla mix until combined. Avoid overworking the dough. Break the eggs into the mixture and bring together to form a smooth dough.
  2. Roll the pastry out thinly (0.5mm) between two silicone mats or parchment paper and chill (Freeze for 15 mins or refrigerate 30mins).
  3. Make the jam during the chill time (see method below).
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Use a 6.5cm fluted cookie cutter to cut out 36 shapes. Bring the dough back together for more cut outs (be careful to not overwork the dough the second time around). Half the cut outs and using a 1cm heart shaped cutter, cut out hearts in the centre of 18 cookies. Place cookies onto a mat on a tray and freeze for 10 mins
  5. Bake for 9-10mins and allow to cool on the tray once baked.

To make the jam:

  1. Cook all the ingredients in a pan on medium heat for 20-30 mins or until temperature reaches 100-105°C.
  2. You can also test this by placing a side plate in the freezer. When the plate if frozen, drop a ¼ of a teaspoon of jam onto the plate. It should set within seconds as you push against it using your finger.
  3. Pour the jam into a bowl and cover with cling film ensuring the film is in contact with the jam and allow to cool.

To assemble the biscuits:

  1. Pour the jam into a piping bag. Pipe the jam in the circular motion in the centre of the bottom half of the cookie (side without the heart cut out).
  2. Place the heart cut out onto the jam base and press lightly, set aside.
  3. Repeat the process for the remaining biscuits. Serve with tea or as is.

Souffle Cheesecake

Ingredients:

  • 140g cream cheese
  • 65g whole milk
  • 45g unsalted butter
  • 4 egg yolks (70g)
  • 40g plain flour
  • 166g egg whites
  • 80g caster sugar

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 145*C (fan oven). Line a 6 inch cake tin with parchment paper.
  2. Add the cream cheese, whole milk and butter together in a bowl and cook over a saucepan of water until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Hand whisk the yolks into the cream mixture until fully incorporated. Then add the flour and keep whisking to combine into the mixture. Strain the mixture through a sieve to further remove any lumps of flour and then set aside.
  4. Now onto the meringue. Begin by whisking egg yolks until it begins to foam. Add the sugar in 3 stages and keep whisking until it forms stiff peaks. Then gently fold the yolk mixture into the meringue. Add your mixture to your lined baking tin, fill to ¾.
  5. Place the cake tin in a large roasting tin and then add warm water to the roasting tin to halfway. Bake for 30 mins.
  6. Lower the oven temperature to 110*C after 30 minutes and open the oven door for 45 seconds to let out some steam.
  7. Close the oven and bake for a further 30 minutes. Once baked, carefully remove from the baking tin and serve.
