Macadamia Blackberry Jam Drops

I made the kids a treat today.  Big news in our house because I have not been baking at all lately. These are delish and any type of jam or curd can be used.

125g softened butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Blackberry Jam (or jam or your choice)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Beat butter and sugar until creamy.  Add the egg and beat until combined, then stir in flour, baking powder and macadamia nuts.

Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place 4cm apart on prepared oven trays.  Flatten each ball slightly with your fingers and then gently make a 1cm indent in the top of each biscuit to form a hollow.

Fill each hollow with approx 1/2 teaspoon of jam.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until biscuits are light golden.  Cool biscuits on trays.
