Jam drop biscuits
A crunchy jammy treat that’s so addicting that you can’t stop at one.
- 175 g Western Star Unsalted Butter (softened)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup CSR Soft Icing Mixture (sifted)
- 1 cup plain flour (sifted)
- 1/4 cup cornflour
- 1/4 cup raspberry jam
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
- Beat the butter, vanilla and icing sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer on medium until pale and fluffy. Add the flour and cornflour, and mix for 30 seconds or until a dough forms. The mixture should be like play dough!
- 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).
- Transfer the biscuits into the oven for 10 minutes or until they turn light golden on the edges and the jam is bubbling.
- Once baked, allow the biscuits to cool on the baking trays for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
