Easy Drop Jam Danish

Servings: 14
Author: Shelly


  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 t Baking Powder
  • 1/2 t Salt
  • 1/2 cup Margarine or Butter
  • 1 egg
  • Enough milk added to the egg to make 3/4 cup I use soy milk to make these dairy free
  • Jam for filling
  • Drizzle
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk


  • Mix dry ingredients.
  • Cut in the margarine or butter.
  • Add most of the egg/milk mixture to moisten the flour. You want the dough moist but not sticky.
  • Drop by the spoonfuls onto the baking sheet. Make a thumbprint in each of the dough balls. Then add the jam in each thumbprint.
  • Bake 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Optional: Mix 1/4 cup powdered sugar with just enough milk to be able to drizzle it. Drizzle over the warm danish.
