Classic Jam Drops Recipe

Classic Jam Drops Recipe

Although it’s  exciting to create recipes that are full of fancy ingredients and boggle the mind, sometimes the classic recipes can give you the same satisfaction.  This Classic Jam Drops recipes does just that. It’s a little bit different thanks to the addition of custard powder to the dough which results in a deliciously smooth and buttery biscuit.

You can use any type of jam you like but I think you would be hard pressed to beat this raspberry jam centre.
