These jam drops are so simple to make. It literally took me 20 minutes to put together and after baking for 10 minutes, i was enjoying these warm, jammy biscuits with a hot cup of tea.

Jen, would you like to write a scrumptious Christmas recipe for me to post at Swish and Swanky? Please. πŸ™‚

Of course!! I’ll aim to get it to you within the next few days xo

These look wonderful. I think I may make these for my cookie exchange this week ( as chocolate was banned!).

Just wanted to say I love them! πŸ™‚ Little bit of brain teaser to convert from grams to cup but well worth it!

Glad you love them! I’ll try and add both measurements next time πŸ™‚
