Jammie Dodgers

Huge Nerd Alert:

Jammie Dodgers

The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is set to air in seven months, and I AM SO EXCITED!

And the Tenth Doctor is coming back! Do you know how exciting this is for me???  *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE*

It can not be contained.

Which means that I have Doctor Who on the brain.  Constantly. Much to the chagrin of my non-Whovian fiancee.

However, he does like cookies. And if there is one thing I can’t resist, it’s cookies. Especially when I can get nerdy with them.

Jammie Dodgers from Doctor Who

Which is where this cookie comes in. The first time I saw it on the show, I mistook it for a Peak Frean, one of those cookies with the sugared jam in the middle and the cream filling around it. When I found out it wasn’t actually that cookie, I had to do a bit of digging, since they aren’t as common here in Canada.

So I present to you, my spin on the Jammie Dodger, the Eleventh Doctor’s favourite snack, remote self destruct button for the TARDIS, and the biscuit carefully left bedside for the impossible girl.

Jammie Dodgers

makes 15 cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp custard powder ( I like Birds )
  • 1/3 cup raspberry jam
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F/ 180°C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and the icing sugar until smooth.
  3. In another small bowl, whisk together the flour and the custard powder. Gradually beat into the butter mixture until just combined, scraping down the sides if necessary .
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8 in/ 3mm thickness. Cut with a 2 in / 5 cm round cutter.  In half of the cookies, cut a small circle or heart out of the center.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until light golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
  6. Once the cookies have cooled completely, spread about 1 tsp of raspberry jam onto one of the whole cookies. Top with one of the cookies with the cut outs. Transfer to an airtight container and let set over night so that the jam soaks into the cookies a bit and “glues” the cookies together.
  7. Keep one handy in case of Daleks.

  1. Oh these cookies are beautiful! (and not so nerdy at all!). I love a simple cookie with jam….because then I can justify eating them for breakfast! Gorgeous photos, too! : )

    • Thank you! They were so good with tea for breakfast! We could hardly wait to eat them ourselves!

  2. I hate to admit this as a bit of a nerd but… I’ve never seen an episode of Dr. Who. 😦 Not that I don’t want to… I’ve heard a lot of good things and eventually want to start watching.

    Great cookies btw!

    • OMG, please don’t because it takes over you life, but please please please do because it;s wonderful and amazing and horrible and so many good things all at the same time!
