Jam Drop Biscuits
  1. With Mum or Dad's help, preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  2. Beat the butter, vanilla and icing sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium until pale and fluffy. Add the flour and cornflour, then mix for 30 seconds or until a dough forms. The mixture should be like play dough
  3. Lightly dust your hands with some extra flour, and then roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Place each onto the trays about 2cm apart and use your fingers to flatten slightly. Create a big thumbprint in the centre of the dough to create an indent, and then fill each with a small blob of jam (1/2 teaspoon)
  4. Ask Mum or Dad to transfer the biscuits into the oven to bake for 15 minutes or until they turn light golden on the edges and the jam is bubbling
  5. Once baked, allow the biscuits to cool on the baking trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely

Making this was so straight

Making this was so straight forward and enjoyable to make! I put peanut butter instead of jam and it tasted amazing. The hubby also enjoyed them they didn't even last a day!
