WHEN you're out in the bush, there's nothing better to come home to except a fresh, hot jam drop.
Well that's what Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull no doubt thinks anyway.
The Prime Minister returned to Parliament House with a batch of Bell's famous jam drops, lovingly made by Manny Sorley.
Mr Turnbull surprised residents by attending the 59th Bell Show on Saturday afternoon. There he was presented with some of Ms Sorley's winning jam drops.
When it comes to biscuits, it doesn't get much more classic than a good old jam drop but they're traditionally a tough cookie to crack.
The best-made jam drops is a hotly-contested competition every year at the annual Bell Show and Ms Sorley walks away as a champion more often than not.
"Well, I'm honoured. You don't get to say you made jam drops for the Prime Minister every day," she said.
"There are plenty of ladies around Bell they could have asked."
Ms Sorley has been making jam drops since the competition started in 1996.
"It's just a challenge for me. I want to do better each year and perfect it," she said.
"They're just a pleasant thing to eat."
So what's the secret to a perfect jam drop?
Ms Sorely won't reveal her tricks to the trade but has offered these necessary tips:
Finding the "just right" oven temperature
Thorough, loving and careful mixing of the ingredients
The perfect "drop"; one that's not too big or small
Even browning of the biscuit on the top and bottom
