Jam Drops Easy Recipe, Jam Drops also known as the Best Thumbprint Cookies, can be baked any day of the year and my Jam Drop cookies/biscuits are one of a selection I make for Easy Bake Christmas cookies
At Christmas time I push red glace cherry halves into the cookie instead of jam and they are so bright and colourful and then you can add the contrast colour of green glace cherry halves great Home baked cookie gift idea.
Jam Drop cookies or Thumb Print Cookies are called this because on your circles of cookie dough you press an indent with your thumb, (if looking for a more hygienic way use a cork) and fill these indents with your favourite Jam or filling.
