Mixed Berry Jam Drops

Mixed Berry Jam Drops

Posted 2018-09-30 by Kate Matefollow
I love to make jam, and when I make a batch of jam I love to make jam drops. Sweet biscuits with a delicious jam filling in the centre.



Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 18 minutes
Serves: 15 x 26g biscuits

Ingredients
125g butter
75g castor sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
185g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons full cream milk
100g mixed berry jam or jam of your choice

Method
  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 160 degrees Celsius fan forced.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the butter, sugar and vanilla and beat until light and creamy.
  • Sift the plain flour and baking powder together.
  • Use a wooden spoon to mix the dry ingredients and milk into the butter mixture and mix until it forms a soft dough.

  • Dough should look like this


  • To make sure the biscuits are all the same size I take a small amount of dough to weigh and add more dough to the scales until I have 26 grams. If you don’t have scales to weigh the dough, you can roll out the dough and try to make them all the same size.
  • Place the balls on the baking tray about 5 cms apart. Press in the centre with your thumb to make a well for the jam.
  • Press in the centre like this


  • Fill each biscuit with jam making sure not to overfill, as the jam can spill over the sides when cooking.

  • Fill with jam


  • Bake for 18 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the tray for 2 minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Notes
    For this recipe I had ran out of mixed berry jam, so I mixed together 50 g of strawberry jam with 50 g of blackberry jam.
