Nothing for it but to cook, sew, and knit.
|Whoops! I already needed to check the taste. |
Those in the front have lime marmalade centres.
Made a batch of jam drops and feel quite proud of them. These are almost our national biscuit, equal in importance with Anzac biscuits.
My mother-in-law used to bake these, so how many degrees of separation would that be?
You are welcome to try my recipe. Very easy.
250g self-raising flour
125g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup red jam
- Cream the butter and sugar. For best results use an electric mixer and beat until the colour changes from yellow to cream.
- Add the egg and vanilla. Stir gently until combined. Do not worry if it looks curdled. It's not.
- Add the flour. Combine well.
- Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture and place on lined oven trays, not too close together. Smaller is actually better for these, so about the size of a macadamia nut.
- Use your thumb to create a depression in the centre of each ball.
- Fill the hole with jam. You will use a very small amount of jam in each one.
- Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.
