Classic Jam Drops Recipe

My classic recipe for Jam Drops, a perfect simple biscuit for anytimeI like to have a jar of something sweet ready in my cupboard to treat any visitors that drop by, or more often than not to give to my girls after a long day at school or during an outing to the park. Jam Drops are such a classic and I don’t think anyone ever says no to one. Suffice to say that these never last too long in my house.

Classic Jam Drops Recipe

Ingredients

250g unsalted butter
165g (¾ cup) caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
335g (2 ¼ cups) plain flour
½ cup strawberry jam

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160C and line your cookie baking tray with baking paper
  2. Beat your butter, vanilla and sugar until pale and creamy. Add your egg yolk and continue beating until combined.
  3. Add the flour and beat until you have a smooth dough.
  4. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes (or pop in your freezer until firm if you are in a rush)
  5. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place on your tray.
  6. To avoid cracks in your cookies work quickly before the dough dries out, flatten it slightly and use your thumb or the back of a teaspoon to make a small dent in the centre of each cookie.
  7. Fill each dent with a ½ teaspoon of jam.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

Hot Tip: Wait for them to cool down slightly before transferring to a wire rack. And don’t eat them too hot, jam burns!
