Recipe - Jam Drops

Hello there!

I have another recipe for you: jam drops! I find jam drops incredibly cute and they taste pretty great too.

 The English Tea Shop tea and a cleverly designed tea ball.
Tea and biscuits!!!

125g unsalted butter (this should be at room temperature)
100g caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract OR 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1 large free range egg
195g SR flour (you can use plain and add 2 1/2 tsp of baking powder)
Pinch of Salt
Raspberry Jam

Preheat oven  to 180 degrees Celsius (moderate oven). Put baking paper on a large tray (you may need two).
Beat butter and sugar until they are creamy and pale.
Add the vanilla and continue to mix.
Add the egg.

Sift the flour (and maybe baking powder) and salt then stir into the mixture until there is no flour left.
Flour your hands slightly and roll into balls (I think they were about the size of a table spoon).
Place these on the tray about 5cm apart and flatten slightly.
Use a teaspoon to make a dent in the top.
Spoon raspberry jam into them - they should be filled with it.
Bake for 15 minutes or until they all look golden.

Have fun!!
