I made Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprints for Eid Al-Adha.

9. Scoop level tablespoons of dough (I scooped level half teaspoons of the dough), and form into balls .Roll each ball in granulated sugar, and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart.

10. Bake until cookies are puffy, about 10 minutes.

11. Remove from oven, and make indentations in centers by pressing with the handle end of a wooden spoon (I pressed with my little finger, caution they are hot). Return to oven, and bake until edges are golden, 6 to 7 minutes more.

12. Transfer sheets to wire racks, and let cool completely.

13. Heat jam in a small saucepan, stirring, until loosened, about 30 seconds. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon into each indentation. (I used strawberry preserve, and I didn’t heat it).

Cookies can be stored in a single layer for up to 1 week. Dimah - http://www.orangeblossomwater.net - Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprints 6

    I usually don’t freeze cookies, but If you want to freeze them so try that with a small batch and don’t add the jelly, but add the jelly before serving, hope this helps :)
