"These cookies are great for kids of all ages. I usually double the recipe when I make them. Using a cookie scoop and soda bottle cap to make the indentations results in uniform cookies, which makes a nice presentation. But you can improvise with other lids; just aim for something about the size of a quarter. Use any variety of jelly, but I do not recommend jelly with chunks of fruit, like strawberry. Attempting to move the cookies prior to cooling completely will cause them to break." — Grace Gutberlet

1 2/3 cups
creamy peanut butter
seedless raspberry jam
My sons love thumbprint cookies and peanut butter so I decided to try this recipe. The dough is very dry and crumbly, chilling made it worse. I added more peanut butter by hand until the dough came together properly. Next time I would use 1 cup of peanut butter and add another egg. I used my 1 tbsp scoop and got 51 cookies that baked in 16 minutes on Silpat lined sheets. I used homemade strawberry jam as that is what we like.
