Jam Drops

These are a simple little biscuit, they are quite easy to make, and everyone at our house likes them! 🙂

 

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ¾ cups self-raising flour
  • ½ cup jam 

Method            

1.   Pre-heat oven to 190 – 200 degrees C (375-400 F).

2.   Beat butter and sugar to a cream.

3.   Sift flour.

4.   Add lightly beaten egg and vanilla. Beat well.

5.   Add to creamed mixture. Mix well to form a stiff paste.

6.   Take teaspoonfuls of mixture and roll into balls. (I made mine a bit bigger than this, and I had to press them down with a fork.)  

7.   Place on greased oven trays, allowing room for spreading.

8.   Make a hollow in each with the floured end of a wooden spoon.

9.   Place a little jam in each biscuit.

10. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

11. Allow to cool on tray.

Makes about 30 very delicious biscuits! 🙂
