Melt-in-the-mouth buttery biscuits made of a unique blend of plain flour and cornflour are sandwiched with tongue-tickling raspberry jam to make everybody’s favourite Jam Biscuits.
The sight of the fruit jam peeping out of a hole in the biscuits adds to the visual appeal of these biscuits making them just too irresistible.
You can store these biscuits in an airtight container to enjoy whenever you wish. You can also surprise your kids by packing a few of these in their snack box .
