      Wonderful, very presentable and very tasty treats, Auntie Sue! I'm getting my Visa for the US tomorrow, but I thought, "Why not let the party begin!" :-)) Right now these cookies are being gobbled down, at a speed that I'd reckon is faster than the speed of light! ;-) I used raspberry jam instead of strawberry jam because I had a whole jar of it on hand and margarine instead of butter. I used 1 cup of melted and not softened margarine. I used store-bought icing sugar to save time instead of powdering white sugar in the mixer/grinder/blender. It saved me time! These cookies took exactly 25 minutes to bake at 150C in my convection oven. {{{{{{{Hugs}}}}} and a big THANK YOU for sharing a very cute looking tasty cookie!

      These are wonderful! Yum Yum! Love the crisp, light, buttery cookie with the twist of PB&J on the standard thumbprint cookie! My kids Loved them and also had fun helping by sticking their finger in the cookies! (wetting you finger helps keep the dough from sticking and I found that a deeper not wider "hole" helps the jelly cover the peanut butter. If the "hole" isn't deep enough the jelly runs out on the cookie and the pan))

      such a pretty and yummy cookie. I would have preferred a more peanut-buttery taste, but all in all a delightful addition to my Holiday Platter.
