These look simple and easy and I’m sure kids would love to make them:
100 g unsalted butter
75 g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
200 g flour
3-4 large tbs jam
Heat the oven to 180°C while you prepare the dough:
Cream together butter and sugar and add the egg, a little at a time, mixing well in between. Add the flour, little by little, until you have a soft dough. Stir in a generous tablespoon of jam to make a ripple effect.
Put about a dessertspoonful (2 tsp) of the dough into small muffin cups or muffin tray. Pat down gently and place a dollop of jam on top of each devil.
Bake in the top part of the oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden on top.
