Thermomix Jam Drops

Thermomix Jam Drops

When I think of classic biscuit recipes, jam drops are right up there at the top of the list! And so, it was definitely time to convert my favourite jam drop recipe to the Thermomix.

Thermomix Jam Drops

If you haven’t yet made Thermomix Jam Drops, you absolutely MUST! They’re so quick and simple…. and taste totally delicious. Seriously, these classic cookies are the best things ever.

I usually use raspberry jam in my biscuits, but you can use any type of jam you like (blueberry is also really, really yum!).

So go on, make a batch of Thermomix Jam Drops (I promise that you wont regret it!).

Notes: these biscuits are meant to be flat (they won’t rise very much due to the small amount of baking powder used). If you’d like them to be slightly less flat, you can try chilling the dough in the fridge before cooking. Also, roll the dough into balls and then very gently use your knuckle to create a very small indent for the jam (don’t flatten the cookie dough). Finally, you can increase the amount of baking powder to 1 tsp.

    1. Hi Olivia, I’m sorry the Jam Drops didn’t turn out for you. Yes it is definitely just 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and you don’t want the biscuits to rise too much. Maybe your baking powder is out of date?

      Hi Crystal, I’ve added some tips and notes into the recipe which will hopefully help you in the future. Basically these biscuits are meant to be flat – but there are a few things you can do to ensure that they are slightly more risen (like in the pictures). I would say that the most important thing is to make sure that when you roll your dough into balls, you don’t flatten it down. Simply place an indent into the ball with your knuckle (without flattening the dough). xx

  1. Yep really flat and unimpressive looking. Such a shame as I have used other receipes on your site and they have been real winners.


  2. A lovely jam drop! They do rise in the oven but then flatten slightly on cooling. But are still fluffy. I used ordinary white sugar plus a dash of vanilla, mine were more buttery than I’d liked, but I put that down to the sugar and the type of butter used. Thank you for a lovely Thermomix recipe! 🙂😋🍪
