Jam Drops are a great favorite being basically a popular shortbread cookie that has been made pretty and sweet and tasty with a dob of jam. Its a quick and easy to bake cookie that takes about 15 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake, so they are ready in about half an hour. Here is a favorite recipe from a seasoned bush cook. Or you can buy a similar product online from Bush Cookies.
225g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
250g plain flour
Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth creamy and fluffy. Stir in vanilla then add flour and mix well. Stir until you get a smooth paste.
Roll out on to a work surface and gently roll until the paste is about 1cm thick.
Then cut out your preferred shapes with a biscuit cutter. Place them on a baking tray with non-stick baking paper
For the jam drops use a finger dipped in flour or object to make an indentation in the centre of each cookie. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of jam into the centre of each biscuit.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
Recommendation: Don’t talk too much at the table or they will all be quickly gone.

What is the difference between Freckle Bickkies, Smarty Cookies or M & M Cookies we get asked. Well they are pretty much the same thing.
Chocolate Smarties are different brand of a similar candy coated chocolate buttons product to M & Ms. Bush Cookies just happen to use chocolate M & Ms in our Freckle Bikkie as a variation to Chocolate Chips. Below is a basic recipe for baking either Chocolate chip Cookies, Smarty Cookies , M & M Cookies or as Bush Cookies call them Freckle Bikkies.
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt (optional)
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup smarties (or 1 cup M&M’s or just use 2 cups milk chocolate chips)
Preheat your oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit
Combine in a your bowl: Flour, baking soda and salt
Then beat butter and sugar together in a mixer.
When well creamed (when you can see no yellowpeices) mix in the vanilla and the egg and beat them together.
Next you slowly add the dry ingredients and when well combined mix in the chocolate chips (or Smarties or M & Ms)
Let the batch cool in the fridge for 40 minutes
Then make little balls of dough by hand and flatten on to a cookie sheet.
Bake them at 325 Fahrenheit for around 20 minutes depending on size of the cookie formations.
When baked take then from the oven and cool them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes then place them on your wire cooling rack.
When cooled find a quite place to gobble them by your self with a glass of milk or a cup of black tea.
NOTE: Food recipes produce different results for different people, as ingredient specifications vary in different regions, stoves are not all accurate in temperature settings or air movement, and people mix the ingredients in different ways. This in not one of the Bush Cookies secret recipes, but a popular recipe published on the internet by an unknown author.
You can of course achieve a perfect cookie every time by buying a Bush Cookies Freckle Bikkie or Bush Cookies Chock Chip cookie from a gourmet grocery store near you.
