strawberry jam drops

A couple of months back on my bday,one of my friend gifted me a book which she thought was apt as now that i have started a food blog ,since then i wanted to desperately make something from it,the book is just wonderful and all about baking goodies,but somehow one or the other ingredients were not in hand and so was lazying around to make but now that,that friend of mine is moving back to india i was feeling very bad and wanted to make something from that book ,so i tried the very first recipe raspberry jam drops,yes i did mentioned the name strawberry jam drops as my title because i didnt have raspberry jam i tried making with strawberry jam,actually i dont think so it will make any difference ,any of your favourite flavoured jam will do,after all at the end it depends on your family tastes and my daughter likes starwberry jam so she was kinda happy and excited as usual when i baked these stuff.Thank you so much rashmi for this beautiful gift,it was definately the best and perfect gift for this year and i was really very touched :-)

makes approx 32-34 pieces ( i made with half the qty as given below because i was trying these for the first time )
ingredients :
125gm (1 cup) self raising flour
80 gm (1/3rd cup ) softened unsalted butter
40gm (1/3rd cup ) instant vanilla pudding mix /custard pwd ( i used vanilla custard pwd )
100 gm raspberry jam ( i used starwberry jam )
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsps milk
caster sugar
method :
Preheat the oven at 180c ,line the baking trays with baking paper or grease the tray with butter and dust it with little plain flour.Cream the butter and sugar with the electric beater until light and fluffy .Add the milk and vanilla and beat till all r mixed completely.Sift the flour and custard pwd and fold in the butter mixture and make a soft dough.Divide the dough into equal marble size balls,make an indentation with finger or end of a wooden spoon in each ball.Fill the holes with your favourite jam and bake for 15 mins or till golden brown in colour.Allow it to cool for few mins and then remove them from the baking tray.These jam cookies can be stored for a week in an airtight container.
