Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies is rated 4.8696 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son absolutely loves these cookies! Why? Because peanut butter is the main ingredient. He likes chocolate kisses in the middle, but his second favorite is black raspberry jelly. I f you want a little bit more of a peanut butter flavor, then use crunchy peanut butter. I always line my cookie sheet with parchment paper. It keeps the cookies from sticking to the sheet in case you forget to set the timer and it makes clean up so much easier. I use a scoop to put my dough on the cookie sheet. It results in more uniformly shaped cookies and it certainly speeds up cooking making. If you find the dough sticks to your scoop, spray it with a small amount of spray on oil or brush with Wilton's Cake Release.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These yummy cookes are a delight for the holidays. With raspberry filling or most any filling of your choice, you can create the perfect cookies for your guests. I have also topped these peanut butter cookies with chocolate and Butterscotch kisses. A wonderful flavor for all to enjoy. Be sure to use Wilton's cake release on your cookie sheets. It truly works to avoid sticking. Have fun baking this treat during the holidays by experimenting with different toppers to please every guest. Happy Baking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficulty Level: Easy kbow_baker25 12/01/2010I love making these cookies for Christmas every year with my mom. we have tried many different things to put in the center and they have always been a hit (most of all with my dad!). The cookies themselves are easy to make and it's a cookie that allows you to be creative with the filing. Chocolate stars are my favorite and this year we are going to try a strawberry filling. my grandmother always used choclate

I think it'll taste like a PB&J!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these cookies and so does everyone in my family. Sometimes I use a Hershey's Kiss and sometimes I use a small peanut butter cup; but I bake mine in the mini muffin pan. The raspberry jam is wonderful too. I recommend these cookies especially for the holiday's you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These cookies brought me back to my childhood. My mom used to make them when I was a kid so when I tried this recipe out, it was exactly how I remembered them! They are so soft and chewy and I've used different jams for the centres.
