Peanut Butter Jammies

Be ready for hand washing afterward: With peanut butter as the main ingredient, this dough is oily. Parents can beat the cookie dough ingredients and leave the shaping to the kids. Use a baby-food or demitasse spoon to spoon jam into thumbprints.

  • Yield: 3 dozen (serving size: 1 cookie)
