This recipe is from the Moranbah State Pre School Family Recipe Book of 1992 when my son Ross was enrolled there.  The recipe is from a good friend of mine who used to baby sit my children when I did relief teaching.  The recipe was her Mothers Mothers recipe.  Its great because you can use the base recipe for jam drops, but you can also use it to make choc chip biscuits or any other biscuit you choose – add nuts, freckles – whatever.

      I love a classic little recipe, and this one for Easy Jam Drops definitely fits the bill! Sometimes the most simple recipe can be the best, our grandparents and parents certainly never bothered with having a cupboard full of the latest and greatest ingredients to keep us feed and happy!
