      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!
