Jam drops are an easy biscuit that I can make with my 3 year old. She really enjoys rolling the dough into balls and putting the jam in the centre, but she LOVES when it’s time to eat them. Here is a quick recipe so you can make them too.


Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Makes: 24



  • 125 g butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups SR flour
  • 1 tbs milk
  • 3 tbs jam (your choice of flavour)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Using a mixer, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla.
  3. Add the egg and mix until combined.
  4. Add the flour and mix again until combined.
  5. Add the milk and mix until a dough forms.
  6. Using approx 2 tsp of mixture per ball, roll the dough into 24 balls and place the balls onto the baking tray.
  7. Flatten each ball with the palm of your hand and use your finger to create and indent in the middle of each one.
  8. Place a small amount of jam (approx 1/3 tsp) in each indent.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden.
  10. Cool biscuits on baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
