Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 15-17 minutes


  • 2 large carrots finely grated
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup margarine softened (use unsalted butter if can’t find margarine)
  • 2 tbs. baking powder
  • 1 package marmalade ( cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. In a standing mixer using a dough hook attachment combine the flour, margarine, and baking powder. You can also knead the dough by hand.
  2. Add in grated carrots. Continue to mix until the dough has come together.
  3. Pour the dough out onto a clean surface and continue to work the dough until it no longer feels tacky. You may need to add additional flour.
  4. Form the dough into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (I often leave it overnight)
  5. Remove dough from the fridge about 10 minutes before working with the dough.
  6. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper.
  7. Cut your dough in half and roll the dough out to about 1/4- 1/2 cm thick.
  8. Cut the dough into squares about 2×2 inch.
  9. Place a piece of marmalade into the center of the dough. Fold the dough diagonally in half to form a diamond. Taking the back of your fork pinch the edges together. (Watch video for better visual).
  10. Bake 15-17 minutes or until bottoms turn golden brown. Cool slightly. Roll in the powdered sugar and ENJOY!
