Preparation steps

1.
For the biscuits: heat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) 350°F gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
2.
Beat together the butter, sugar and syrup in a mixing bowl until combined.
3.
Gradually beat in the egg and vanilla until well mixed.
4.
Sift together the flour and baking powder and stir into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Then gather the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.
5.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes until firm.
6.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface about 3mm |(1/8 ” thick and cut into rectangles measuring about 3cm x 8.5cm| (1¼” x 3½ “.
7.
Using a very small plain round cutter or the end of a plain round piping nozzle, cut out 3 holes to represent the lights in half of the rectangles only.
8.
Place the rectangles on the baking trays and bake for 8-10 minutes until just golden. Cool on the trays for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
9.
For the lemon cream: beat the butter until soft. Sift in the icing sugar and beat well, then beat in the milk until blended. Beat in the lemon juice.
10.
Spread the biscuits without the holes with the lemon cream.
11.
Spoon 3 small blobs of the different coloured jams along the centre of the cream topped biscuits to represent the traffic lights.
12.
Dust the biscuits with the holes with a little icing sugar and then arrange on top of the jam-topped biscuits. Press down gently so that the jam shows through.
