"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
I followed the recipe as is, except that I skipped the 4hr chilling step and went straight into the oven. The cookies turned out amazing!
Made these today after cleaning the fridge/pantry and finding 3 half-used jars of grape jelly and 2 half-used jars of peanut butter. I did not chill the dough and they turned out fine, so that's an unnecessary step. The direction to "Scoop dough into 2 table-spoon sized balls," I assume is a typo? They're very good but a little on the too-sweet side for me. I think if I make them again I may cut down on the amount of sugar.
