The other day the kids asked me to make some biscuits. I didn’t have any chocolate chips as I usually make a batch of chocolate chip biscuits so I decided to go through my recipe books.
I found a recipe for raspberry jam drops. After quickly looking through the ingredients list I had every thing to start making a batch.
- 90g butter softenend
- 1/3 cup caster sugar
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 cup of self raising flour
- 1/3 cup custard powder
- 3 tbsp raspberry jam
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla essence. Add flour and custard powder and mix to form a soft dough.
Roll the mixture into a ball and press down to form a round biscuit shape. Using a spoon or your thumb (which is what I use) make a small indentation and add a teaspoon of jam.
Bake for 180C for 15 mins.
These biscuits are such a yummy treat for Autumn and Melbourne has had some perfect weather too.
