Jam Drops. (This one's for you Mrs Rhone).

I enjoy good old fashioned baking, stuff my gran would've made & are still just as yummy today. The other day Amity & i made these (and Scarlett ate the cookie dough).

I found a recipe & then tweaked it a bit to suit us better, we used Blackcurrant jam & Apple, Rhubarb & Cinnamon conserve to fill them. Still eating them to decide which flavour is my favourite............but i think they'll taste really good with homemade plum jam. (wink wink Mrs Rhone). Here's the recipe:

Jam Drops
3/4 cup SR flour
3 tbsps rice flour
70g butter, softened
4 tbsps caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 180c. Line trays with baking paper. Cream together butter & sugar until light & fluffy, then beat in egg & vanilla. Fold in the flours until just combined. Roll one teaspoon of the mixture into a ball & put on a tray. Repeat with all the mixture. Press an indent into the centre of each cookie & fill with a little jam. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden.
Makes about 30.

Enjoy!  I am planning a new & very exciting baking adventure soon, finger's crossed it turns out & i'll share it with you.


  1. ooohhh oohh that's me! Nice indeed. Hmm yes that would be something nice to use my jam on. Although the kids are going through our homemade jam very quickly. Can't wait to see what the baking adventure is!!!! Do I get a hint??

  2. These look yummy makes me want to bake! I have my mum's women's weekly cookbook that she baked from when we were kids the recipes are simple and delish! Thanks for the inspiration...
