Something old-fashioned is in order today!

Jam Drops

125g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
1 1/4 cups SR flour
1/3 cup strawberry jam


Preheat oven to 180c.  Line 2 trays with baking paper.
Use an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy.  Add the egg and beat until combined.  Sift flour over the butter mixture and stir until just combined.

Use lightly floured hands to roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls. 
Place on trays about 5cm apart.  Use a lightly floured finger to make an indentation in the centre of each ball.  Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of jam into the centre.  Bake for 15 mins or until just golden. 

Note:  for a crunchy change why not try adding a cup of corn flakes, rice bubbles, nuts or dried fruit!
