Jam drops are the sort of biscuits that are great to make with kids. Nothing like getting them in the kitchen early, making culinary delights for the family to share. These are particularly good because they get to use their hands a lot, which makes the task even more enjoyable. Rolling the dough into balls, adding a thumb print to the centre of the biscuit, then filling it with their favourite jam, ensures they get the full baking experience rather than just watching from the sidelines. They may not turn out perfectly, but that’s part of the fun. Nothing quite like the bragging rights of saying: I made them myself.
