  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on the top. Make a small hole in the top of each cookie using the handle of a wooden spoon. Fill the holes with preserves.
  3. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes in preheated oven. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

This recipe DOES work. It is my husbands favorite cookie now. It is a little more fudgey than cakey - but totally awesome (besides what can you expect when you omit the flour). Three suggesti...

These are the greatest cookies! I have found that using the back of a 1/8 teaspoon I was able to form a great dimple for the jelly filling. I have been making them since last christmas and was...

We have an Uncle Mac in the family also but he sure can't make cookies as yummy as these. *lol* These cookies are great! We've made it a few times already because it disappears fast and the kid...

These were very good, but don't press down too hard when making the criss cross pattern. My first batch was too thin and I ended up with flat little peanut butter donuts and the jelly melted thr...

I made these for a bon voyage party for my father who has celiac disease (he can't have any gluten). He is always looking for new things to eat in the sweets department because he doesn't have m...

These cookies are great! With and without peanut butter...they are soft, and very, very chewy. Some things I suggest are: Only use about half a cup of sugar..It's VERY sweet! And do not over coo...
