Jammer Biscuits

7 Aug




Since the Olympics are in London this year, I decided to celebrate by making some Jammer Biscuits. In a nutshell, it’s jam baked on top of a buttermilk biscuit.

I don’t know about you but I have never been one to watch the Olympics until this year. My boyfriend has it playing on the television pretty much 24/7 so it’s hard to get away from. The only two sports I found myself getting into were the girl’s gymnastics and swimming. Any who, enjoy one of these flakey buttery biscuits with a spot tea. Your morning will be extra special. Enjoy!

Makes 9 biscuits 


  • 4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  •  6 tablespoons sugar
  •  1 tablespoon baking powder
  •   1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  1 cup (2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  •  1 3/4 cups chilled buttermilk

    9 tablespoons strawberry, cherry or apricot jam







Whisk together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Freeze the mixture  for 1 hour.

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degree’s F

Transfer the flour mixture to a food processor. Add butter and cut in for 10 to 15 pulses. Return to a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add chilled buttermilk and stir until just moistened. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface. Gather the dough and pat into a 1 inch circle. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out desired size of biscuits. Transfer to large baking sheet, spacing one inch apart. Insert thumb into the middle of each biscuit and put a tablespoon of jam into each indentation. Bake for about 25 minutes. Serve warm.

    oh, forgot to add: we’ve been watching the Olympics a lot too, but my husband always has it on a Romanian channel! lol.

      haha thats funny. Is the Romanian coverage of the Olympics different then the American?

        Slightly different – you don’t see the American teams AS MUCH; you get broader coverage!
        Plus, of course, all the commentary is in Romanian. If they’re taping someone in English, they always talk over it in Romanian! haha.

    Well, at least you got into something. I have to say, I’m with your boyfriend. There’s something about watching people who are the very best at what they do that just fascinates me and makes boring sports interesting. Thanks for the London flare.

    p.s. Your new background is fun. I like the blue.

    I agree with you. The talent of these sixteen year old gymnast are amazing.
