2. Place flours, sugar, butter and a pinch of salt in a food processor and pulse until the mixture begins to form a ball. Turn mixture out onto a flat surface.

3. Knead dough until it comes together, then roll out onto a lightly floured surface to a 1cm thickness.

4. cut flower shapes into dough using a flower-shaped cookie cutter. While cutter is in dough, use your thumb to create a dimple in the centre of the biscuit (see Notes). Repeat until all the dough is used. Place biscuits on lined trays, leaving a little space between each. Fill dimples with jam.
