Smucker's Jewel Box Cookies

From Smucker's Taste Test in the grocery store. I made these sugar free by substituting the sugar with Splenda and the jelly with sugar free jelly. My diabetic B-I-L and all the kids, loved them!
I put the prep time high because the kids helping made it take longer - this is a great recipe for the them to do! And the cook time higher simply because it is actually in between the options.

crisco baking sticks butter flavor

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
