First time making these, my kids & partner ate them all. Very pleased will surely be making more from now on. Thanks

Oh this recipe is so similar to what my mum used to make but i lost the recipe. So yum...

Try using peanut butter and jam instead of only jam. Very tasty.

Super easy to make and very tasty. The best jam drop cookie recipe by far

Yummy biscuits. Quick and easy to make. Now a regular on my baking list.

So easy with little ingredients and we all enjoyed them for morning tea.

I made them at tech at school and they were delicious just like these!

Do I have to use Chelsea icing sugar or can I use white sugar?
CHELSEA: Hi there, we recommend using icing sugar as this gives the biscuits a really nice shortbread-like texture.

I have not made them yet but I am going to!

This was a crumbly mess. The recipe was followed to a T, and the buiscuits just fell apart into crumbs all over the cookie pan. I could not make a well for the jam due to the flimsiness of this recipe. Terrible.

Love the shortbread texture! yum.

also nice if you add a few drops of almond essence to dough, using raspberry jam.....a recipe my aunty used when we were little..

My kids love these biscuits they are great when I don't have any eggs. I also change the custard powder for cocoa and the jam for a white choc button. Just as yummy :)

Try adding 1tsp cinnamon & 1/2 tsp mixed spice with raspberry jam - like a Belgium biscuit - yum!

Really enjoyed these I know the grandchildren are going to love them.

strawberry jam is also yum to use in these biscuits

Absolutely delicious!!

I made these for my partner who has been missing "jammy dodgers" and they were a perfect supplement - but I think they were even better :)

image description

They turned out delicious! however I think they were a little too crumbly for my liking!

image description

Turned out great, loved by all my kids even the fussy one. I used jam for the kids, and Barkers passionfruit curd to take for morning tea, they were delicious

Love them, I put in almond ess and did 3 different flavoured jams.
