Jam Drops

jam-drops-web-with-tea

Well, if you’ve gone to the effort to make jam the next logical step is to make Jam Drops isn’t it?  Who doesn’t like a jam drop? Actually, fussy Miss 5 but I know she will change her mind next week as it’s just not right, strange child.  Oh well, all the more for the rest of us!  These are good old fashioned jam drops, I have used the chia jam I just made but any jam will do. I did make these in the Thermomix for ease but it’s not necessary, traditional method first and scroll down for Thermie version.

Ingredients

125 g unsalted butter, softened

1 C or 200g brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

1 1/2 C or about 180 g plain flour or GF flour

1 tsp baking powder

Method

Preheat oven to 160 C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper

In an electric mixer cream butter, sugar & vanilla, scrape sides if necessary

Add egg and combine

Add sifted flour and baking powder and mix until combined and a dough has formed

Scoop out teaspoons of mixture (if you want 24 small biscuits), or like I did tablespoons (for about 16 biscuits) and shape into balls then flatten into a biscuit shape.  Press your thumb or the back of a spoon into the centre to make an indent.

Put a teaspoon full of jam into the indent and then bake in the oven for 15 minutes then remove.

Leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes to firm up a bit

Transfer to a wire cooling rack until cooled completely

Enjoy!

      I think I’ll do them for the school lunch boxes this week too. I know – making jam was first for me but it was so easy – the kids wanted normal jam though so can’t win them all!
