Had a few opportunities to bake lately, and it’s all been win.
Here’s the recipe for Jam Drops (sorry I can’t remember the source)
20 minutes preparation, 18 minutes cooking
Makes about 25
75g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
185g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp milk
Jam (any flavour will do!)
1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking try with non-stick baking paper.
2) Beat the butter, caster sugar and vanilla essence in a medium bowl until pale and creamy. Sift the flour and baking powder together. Use a wooden spoon to mix the dry ingredients and milk into the butter mixture. mix to a soft dough.
3) Roll small balls of dough with lightly floured hands and place on the prepared baking tray about 5cm apart. Flatten each ball with a spatula to make them about 3.5cm in diameter. Make a 2cm indent in the center of each with your finger or the end of the wooden spoon. Fill each indent with jam.
4) Bake in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through. Stand on the baking tray for 2 to 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
