    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Immediately, with back of measuring teaspoon, make indentation in each baked cookie. Fill each indentation with heaping 1/4 teaspoon jam. Remove from cookie sheets.

  • Add color to your tray of cookies by using a variety of jams or preserves as fillings for these gems. We used strawberry and apricot.
