J is for Jam Drops

Category: food

Make afternoon tea time all the more delicious with homemade jam drops. A true Aussie staple, this crumbly, jam-filled biscuit is the perfect addition to a cup of English Breakfast tea. But be warned, your batch will be gone moments later – they are truly that tasty.

Method

1 - Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4. Grease and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper. 
2 - Combine the ground almonds, coconut, icing sugar, and cornflour in a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine. 
3 - Add the eggs and milk, mixing to a soft, slightly sticky dough using your hands. 
4 - Dust your hands with a little cornflour and then take scant tablespoons of the dough and shape into balls between your palms.
5 - Arrange on the baking trays, spaced apart. Make a thumbprint indent in each piece of dough. 
6 - Bake for 18-22 minutes until golden all over and dry to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool. 
7 - Once cool, fill with teaspoons of jam before serving.
