As you may or may not know, "I Love Roses"... These ones are from our cottage garden,,they smell divine....
you can find these at retailers of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Food. )
We do love a jam drop or two in this shabby little cottage,,soo,,,,
Jam Drop Cookies with Rose Petal Jam
*125g Butter *1 egg
*100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar *190g ( 1 1/4 cups) Self raising flour
*2 tsp Rose water (or 1tsp of vanilla essence) *Rose petal Jam (or any jam)
*Preheat oven 180c,, line 2 baking trays
* using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar and rose water until pale and creamy, add the egg and beat until combined.
*Sift flour over the butter mixture and stir with wooded spoon until combined.
* roll balls from tea spoon, place on try about 5cm apart, make an indent with finger in middle of ball and spoon in jam.
* Bake in pre heated oven for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and a light golden brown..... Enjoy..
the next stage I fold the flour in, as to much stirring and beating makes the cookies a little tough...
Pop into a nice hot oven...
Once cooled ( if they last that long ) pop into an air tight container...
That's it from me today,, I'm off to give a bit of TLC to a little shabby old farm kitchen table,, will be sharing that soon.
Until next adventure
