How To Make jelly thumbprint cookies

    With hand, press dough together to form a ball. Shape dough by rounded teaspoon into 1-in balls. Place balls, 1 in apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet. Bake cookies 5 minutes.

    Working quickly, remove cookie sheet from oven and with end of wooden spoon, make small indentation in the center of each ball. Return to oven and bake cookies 8 minutes longer or until lightly browned.

If not serving right away, allow jam to set, then store cooies, with waxed paper between layers, in tightly overed container up to a week.
