jam drops

My mum, sis-in-law and niece dropped over yesterday, so i whipped up these very easy jam drop bickies for afternoon tea.  I actually made them while they were here waiting for the kettle to boil.  So if you want something quick and easy as a little treat, here's the recipe:

2 cups plain flour                   2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup of sugar                    jam
125 gm butter                       2 eggs

Cream the butter and sugar - i cheated and semi-melted the butter first.  Add eggs one at a time beating well.  Got to love my ancient sunbeam mixmaster.  Add sifted flour (cheated here as well and didn't sift!) and baking powder.  Mix well.  Roll into small balls, place on a greased tray.  Press a hole in the centre, i just used my finger, and place a little jam in the hole.  Bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes and yum!  Afternoon tea.  They would be good for lunchboxes too.
