*Jam Drop Cookies Recipe*

Hope Christmas at your house was a lovely, relaxing day filled with love and laughter. We had lots of fun with the family at the beach this year, didn't really want to come back to the big smoke.
The holidays allowed reading, baking and general lazyiness. Today it is raining and miserable so I baked some family favourites -Jam Drops and have included our recipe if you feel tempted to try.

Needed: 125 g softened butter, ½ cup caster sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 egg, 1 cup plain flour, 1 cup self-raising flour, 1 teaspoon custard powder, jam.

To make jam drops, cream butter and sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Sift in flours and custard powder, and combined with a wooden spoon. Roll into balls (I used about 1 tablespoon of mixture per a ball) and place onto baking paper covered tray. Use your finger to make an indent, and fill with your jam (I used raspberry jam in mine). Bake for about 15 – 20 mins. YUM!

January also brought our newest contribution to Homespun Magazine - cover shown below.
I had lots of fun making these two dolls.

Just wanted to wish you all a happy 2012 before January is over :) Hope it is everything you wish it to be.

Take care
