Comments 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. Avoid excess jam as it bubbles out of the biscuit, avoid fruit clumps.
