A childhood favourite. Photo via club pimble
A shiny pink packet filled with these delicious jam biscuits was a sight our younger selves could never ignore. Right from fighting with our siblings over who gets to open the packet to hiding the last biscuit like our lives depended on it, Jimjam has been a very important part of our childhood.
So how about making your inner child a lot happier by baking your favourite treat at home. No more fighting over who gets how many biscuits!
