CHEF'S TIP

  • These Jam Drops are perfect for experimenting with other jam flavours – and they taste even better with homemade jam! Check out our Strawberry Jam Recipe if you feel like giving it a go yourself!
  • To make sure that your jam drop biscuits cool completely, leave them on the wire rack for about 10-15 minutes.
  • If you’d rather not use your finger to make an imprint for the jam in the biscuits, try using the rounded tip of a wooden spoon handle instead.  
  • These sweet treats make for perfect little lunchbox fillers, or a dainty addition to a picnic or afternoon tea.
