Jumbles are a type of cookie that originated in England. They are made with flour, butter, sugar, eggs, and baking powder, and they can be flavored with vanilla or lemon. Jumbles are typically round or oval-shaped, and they can be either soft or crisp.


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup ground almonds


In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine with a wooden spoon until soft, but not oily. Add the sugar, and continue beating until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Sift and add the flour. Add in the grated lemon rind and the almonds.

Form the mixture into three rolls, each about 1/5 inch wide. Cut these into 4 inch long pieces, and form them into ‘S’ shapes.

Place on baking trays. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until risen and pale brown. Cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack
