These are easy and good; my daughter's daycare friends loved them. One change; the first batch I made exactly according to recipe, and I just thought it was a little too sweet for me and not quite peanut-buttery enough. So second batch, I melted about 1/3 cup of peanut butter in the microwave, then drizzled it over the jam and drew a knife through for swirls, before adding the rest of the dough. Also put a little (tsp) lemon juice in the jam to help make it tart. More like PBJ sandwiches, super-yum.

Really good! I used strawberry jam but followed the recipe otherwise.

I should have reviewed this recipe a long time ago because I've been using it for years now. I make it gluten free by substituting Pamela's baking mix for the flour. This is a crowd pleaser!

I made this for dessert for our family's Sunday lunch and it was a hit. I didn't have any jam, so I sliced fresh strawberries and used them for the middle layer. I thought it was a nice substitution (and lessened the amount of added sugar in the recipe.)

I made these over the weekend. They were dry out of the oven, but when i put the in an air tight container they softened. I used strawberry freezer jam. I think next time i will use more. They are very good and evryone wants me to make again. Thanks for posting

I was going to submit this recipe myself but, guess I won't need to now! I made these for the first time yesterday, and the kids loved them. I think next time I'm going to try jam instead of jelly, and use a little less than a cup. It was a bit much for me.
