Jen’s Yummy Jam Drops
185g butter softened in microwave
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 ¾ cup of plain flour
1 egg and 1 tablespoon water to make egg wash
shredded coconut for rolling
Mix butter sugar and vanilla then add flour. Refrigerate for ½ hour then roll into little balls, dip into egg wash and then shredded coconut.
Place on tray and use thumb to make jam hole. Put a small amount of jam into each biscuit. I find using a good quality jam with a low sugar content like the brand St Dalfour best for baking jam drops, the jam doesn’t burn and bubble. Bake at 180 for about 25 mins.
Don’t eat them all by yourself!
