Mix together 1 1/2 cups brown sugar with 250g softened butter and 1 egg.
Add 2 1/2 tsp mixed spice, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 3/4 cups flour and 1 tbsp baking powder. Mix all together, then add 1 more cup of flour.
Mix again to form a dough, tip out onto the bench.
Roll out to 5mm thick, cut out circles.
Bake at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Spread half with jam, then sandwich them together.
Mix together 1 cup of icing sugar, 1 tbsp milk and 1 tsp butter and a dash of pink food colouring to make icing. Dollop on the tops.
This recipe is basic - I don't muck around with colouring sugar granules etc for sprinkling on top, too much feffing around and not enough eating!
