  • This biscuit mixture can be used to make jam drops. Cooked biscuits will keep for months stored in an air tight container or vacuum packed.
  • If making into jam drops, make a small well in the centre of the biscuits and place jam of choosing. End of a wooden spoon works well.
  • Avoid excess jam as it bubbles out of the biscuit, avoid fruit clumps.
