If you like jammies, you're gonna love these biscuits - they taste so much better than the store bought ones. And you can make them in any shape you want, just need two cutters in different size (or shape). I went for the heart shape and used raspberry jam to stick halves together, but it's totally up to you. Or maybe you want to use nutella or peanut butter instead? Give it a try!

250g salted butter (chilled, cut in small cubes)
2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup icing sugar
3 egg yolks
small jar of jam

Sieve flour, baking powder and icing sugar together in a mixer bowl. Add butter and beat it on low speed until it's crumbly (if you don't have standing mixer, you can mix it by hand - just crush butter with your fingers, mixing it with flour until there's no big lumps visible). Add egg yolks and mix until it's smooth. Chill it for around an hour in refrigerator. Roll pastry so it's around 3mm thick and cut out shapes, cutting out holes in half of them. Bake them on a lined tray in 180C for 12-15 minutes until  they are golden brown. When they are cooled, spread some jam on half of the biscuits without a hole and cover with the holed ones, pressing lightly so they stick together. I've dusted mine with icing sugar, but it's optional.
Enjoy :-)
