This is a no-brainer recipe but (in my opinion) delicious! A definite kid pleaser (or for the kid at heart). Use any kind of jelly or jam you like - raspberry is good, grape, blueberry, etc.

I had some issues with my biscuits but I don't think that was the fault of the recipe. I will try again with another brand. These went directly to the freezer for lunchbox's and they worked out great. I just threw it in the lunchbox in the a.m. and by lunchtime they were thawed and ready to eat. I will definitely play with these in the future.

Delicious! I only had a small can of buttermilk biscuits so I decided to make a mini version of this recipe and followed the directions exactly. I also sprinkled the tops with a little bit of sugar before baking. My husband loves PB&J and he went crazy over these bite size pockets. It's just the two of us and there was no leftovers! What a great change from boring sandwiches. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

my first batch didn't turn out too well. I put too much jelly and didn't crimp enough. I also added the cinnamon sugar on the 2nd batch. my son is taking them to rugby tomorrow. I think they will be a big hit. Definitely need to put in big letters MAKE SURE TO CRIMP ON BOTH SIDES. :)
