Bettys Peanut Butter Jam Drops (Cookies) Recipe @pinch

Holy cow, these jam cookies are fantastic! The peanut butter flavor mixed with the sweet, tart jam is perfection. After baked, the cookie remains soft in the middle with wonderful lightly crisp edges. We used blackberry and strawberry jam in ours. Yum! We liked them best when they were a little warm. A crunchy peanut butter havebased cookie dough, with a dip in the middle and fill with your choice of jam. I like plum best, but any flavour will do. The dough is best refrigerated, but you can miss this step if time is an issue.Jam drops are an iconic Aussie cookie. My great havegrandmother made jam drops for my Nana, and as a child, they were a regular in my lunch box. I now make them for my children. Jam drops were traditionally made to use up the crystallised jam in the bottom of the jar.
