LOVED 'EM!! I was looking for a different way to make peanut butter cookies and found this recipe. They are great! The dough is very fluffy and light. I took them to work for a pot luck and they were a big hit! The only thing I did different was to cook the cookies with the jelly in them. You have to make the impressions pretty deep to do this - but it taste better in my opinion..

If ever there was a cookie that turns out EXACTLY as it's supposed to, this is it. I used a 1 T. cookie scoop to measure out the dough, so each was the perfect and perfectly-matched size. The rounded 1/2 tsp. measuring spoon I used to fill the indentations with is the same spoon I used to make the indentations and that worked perfectly, just as the recipe instructed, two minutes out of the oven. I made these using my favorite (Skippy...) peanut butter and, for contrast, used both blackberry and peach preserves. For Peanut Blossom lovers, for classic peanut butter cookie lovers, or for peanut butter and jelly sandwich lovers, this cookie will suit all of you. Delicious and very, very cute.

These just maybe my favorite cookies! My only recommendation: use preserves and add to the cookies before you bake them. They turned out sooo good I will definitely be making them again for the holidays and parties.
