Here's How to Make Date Jam Biscuit

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Take the large-size mixing bowl and add butter and date sugar. Use the whisk to beat them until light and fluffy.

Step 2: Combining Egg and Flour

Now combine the egg and flour into a fluffy mixture. Remember to continuously beat the mixture to prevent curdling.

Step 3: Combining Remaining Flour with Baking Powder

After that, add one cup of flour and baking powder and regularly beat until smooth. Add flour step by step into the mixture and beat continuously to turn into a soft, firm dough.

Step 4: Divide and Knead the Dough

Knead the dough well with a mixer or by hand. Then cut the dough into two equal parts. Spread some flour over the work area and roll each piece of the dough in a rectangle shape of about 2cm.

Step 5: Spread Jam and Sprinkle Almonds, Dates

Now spread the date jam (you can increase the jam quantity according to desire) on each dough evenly. Then sprinkle chopped almond and chopped dates over the dough.

Step 6: Role and Refrigerate

When you finish the sprinkling process, roll each dough softly. Now refrigerate the roll for 1-2 hours until they set well.

Step 7: Slice and Sprinkle Coconut 

Use the sharp knife and cut the dough into Swiss roll style. Coat each slice with shredded coconut according to your desire.

Step 8: Baking 

Now place the roll slices into the baking sheet and bake for 26-30 minutes with gas mark 4 or fan oven at 160C (320F) or electric oven at 180C(350F) until they turn golden brown.
