Makes12 cookies


  • 4 ½ Tbsp (64 g) margarine
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • 3/4 cup (100 g) Loprofin Baking Mix
  • 2 Tbsp cherry jam or preserves


  • 5 Tbsp (71 g) butter
  • 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp (75 g) Loprofin Baking Mix
  • 6 maraschino cherries (30 g), halved


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cream together the margarine and sugar until light and creamy. Gradually mix in water. Add baking mix and combine by hand to form a firm dough (add a little extra water if necessary).
  • Knead for 20-30 seconds on a work surface dusted with baking mix.
  • Roll out the dough and cut into rounds using a 3-inch cutter. Place in tartlet tins.
  • Add ½ tsp of cherry jam onto the center of each dough circle.
  • To prepare the filling, cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat in the baking mix to give a soft consistency.
  • Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a medium-sized star nozzle. Pipe rings around the inside edge, leaving the jam in the center visible.
  • Place halved maraschino cherry in the middle, on top of jam.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden.
