Jam Drop Biscuits

Instead of jam, I used Quince Paste in the center of each biscuit. It was less messy and held its shape.

125 softened butter
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups of plain flour
1/4 cup of cornflour
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
Jam or fruit paste for filling.

Preheat oven to 180c. and prepare baking trays with baking paper.
Place butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in TMX bowl and mix for 30 seconds at speed 6.
Add flours and coconut and mix, 30 seconds at speed 6. Scrape down bowl and mix for further 10 seconds, speed 6.

Roll into small balls, ( I use a small ice cream scoop ), and place on trays.
Press a dent on the center and place a small cube of paste or a small teaspoon full of jam in the center.
Bake 15 mins. and cool on trays.

Makes 30 - 35
