To make the cookies without a cookie cutter, take about half a tablespoon of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Take your finger and push a hole into the centre, as described above and place a drop of jam in the centre. Place cookies on the UN GREASED baking tray about 1 inch width apart.
Bake in preheated oven at 350F, 180C, Gas 4 for 10 minutes or until the edges just begin to slightly brown. (see photo)
Remove from the oven, cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray then transfer to cooling rack
