Jam drops

It is quite remiss of me that jam drops are not here yet! We love our jam drops! This recipe is a little different to others as I use rice flour and self-raising flour. These little morsels make fabulous gifts too! And really, who wouldn’t want a bag of buttery goodness?!


250 g butter

1 cup caster sugar

½ cup brown sugar

4 eggs

1 ½ cups self-raising flour

1 cup rice flour

A pinch of salt

Strawberry jam



Have the butter at room temperature and then stir in your sugars. Add the eggs one at a time and stir for a while. Now add the salt and rice flour. Stir until combined. Finally, add the self-raising flour. It should be hard to stir with your spoon, and still pliable . Using a tablespoon to measure, section out portions and roll into balls using the palm of your hand. Place on a lined baking tray. Press into the middle of the balls with your finger, being careful not to touch the bottom, just making a small indent. Add a little jam into the cavity you’ve created. Mine usually take ¼ to ½ a teaspoon.

Bake your cookies in a 180 degree Celsius oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown on the top. This recipe makes lots of cookies!! Approximately 40. For a variation have a go at some little chocolate bits instead of jam, plain or with a little crushed almond on top!
