  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg and beat until well combined. Stir in the flour.
  2. Step 2

    Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls. Place on lined trays, allowing room for spreading. Use your thumb or the end of a wooden spoon to make an indentation in the shape of a heart in the centre of each ball. Spoon ½ tsp of the jam into each indentation.
  3. Step 3

    Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 mins or until light golden. Set aside on the trays to cool completely.
