This recipe is so simple that kids can even do it. The ingredients are simple - peanut butter cookies and jelly, preserves or jam. Yep that's it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Simply make up your favorite recipe for peanut butter cookies (you can even use refrigerated rolls or store mix). Form your cookie dough into 1" balls. Spray the tins of a mini muffin pan. Place the cookie dough balls into the bottom of the tins. Press down to cover the bottom of the tins and a little up the side. Press a dent in the center (this can be done with your finger if you don't have long nails but it needs to be round. Just be careful and don't go all the way through. Next, add about 1/2 tsp. of your favorite jam, preserves or jelly to each dent. Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool in the pan for about 5-10 minutes. Using a large spoon, carefully run around around the edge of your cookie to loosen and lift out. Place on a rack to cool completely.
These turned out so delicious! You can actually do this with just about any cookie - chocolate (not with chips), sugar, etc. You can use any flavor jelly/jam/preserves - whatever happens to be your favorite or your child's favorite or do some of both. You can also do as I did and fill some of them with chocolate chips. My food testers all loved these. One said she simply couldn't quit eating them and ended up eating all 7 that I brought her. This is a fun recipe to do with the kids, especially for the holidays.
