Being a part of a little bush town you tend to get lassoed into helping out. As a member of the local Hall Committee (Why? Because Country Halls are super important to us), I've been roped into cooking for some hungry farmers, while they learn all about...well....farming stuff.
Alas, no time like the present to bring out the trusty "Jam Drops" recipe.
NOTE : Feel free to double this recipe if your catering for a crowd. The below measurements should make around 25 biscuits.
3/4 Cup Sugar (I use raw)
2 eggs (I use Duck for some extra puff!)
2 Cups Self Raising Flour (I use wholemeal, so it sticks to their ribs a bit more. GF Flour can also be used)
Jam (I make my own Jam using Fowlers Jam Setter which is GF)
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and beat well. Mix in sifted flour. Roll into stiff balls the size of a walnut. Place on greased/papered oven trays. Stick your finger into the dough to make a little well and fill with a dollop of Jam. Like so.........
Bake in moderate oven for 10 - 15 or until they have a nice little sun tan.
Hot cuppa just perfect for dunking and your done. Enjoy.
