How to Make:

  1. Process butter, sugar, flours and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor stopping and scraping down sides with a spatula, if needed, until dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently to combine.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape into discs. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until just firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 170C/150C fan-forced. Grease 3 large baking trays. Line with baking paper. Roll out 1 portion of dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 3mm thick. Using 6cm star-shaped cutter, cut shapes from dough, re-rolling and cutting trimmings. Place stars, 2cm apart, on prepared trays. Repeat with remaining dough. Using 2.5cm round cutter, cut 1 round from the centre of 1/2 the stars.
  4. Bake, 1 tray at a time, for 10 minutes or until just firm to touch, but not browned. Cool on trays for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Spoon 1 teaspoon of jam onto the centre of each whole star. Leaving a 3mm border, spread jam over stars. Top with cut stars, pressing gently to secure. Dust stars liberally with icing sugar. Serve.
