Coconutty Jam Drops

Jam Drops

I am a fiend - an absolute fiend - for coconut in baked goods. Cannot get enough of the stuff! So when Galumph and the Tyger decided to bake some jam drops on Sunday, I was all "YO! PUT SOME COCONUT IN DEM COOKIES, Y'ALL!"

I'm not sure why I hollering at them in an atrocious home girl accent, but it worked. They whacked in some coconut, and boy oh boy - are these things hot diggity dog delicious!!

Coconutty Jam Drops

125g butter, softened
1/2 cup raw caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cup self-raising flour
2/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/3 cup raspberry jam

1 - Preheat oven to 180 C (or 170 C if fan forced). Line two trays with baking paper. Use an electric beater to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla essence until pale and creamy. Add the egg, and mix until combined.

2 - Sift the flour into the butter mixture, and add the coconut. Mix well to combine.

3 - Roll teaspoons of the mixture into balls. Place each ball onto a baking tray, leaving some room for the biscuits to spread. Flatten the biscuit slightly, then use a finger to poke an indentation into each biscuit. Fill the indentation with jam.

4 - Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Cool on tray for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.

  2. Leave cookies to cool? Nonsense! Those things would be scolding-jam volcanic deliciousness and wouldn't last a minute at our house!

  3. Oh my! I'm so adding these to my baking list for tomorrow. The 4 year old is requesting Anzac biscuits as he thinks that's what Anzac day is all about...
