The minute I saw these cookies on Joy the Baker's blog in June I knew I had to make them. I didn't know it would take me this long, but as I was preparing my cookie plate for this holiday I immediately thought of these cookies. They were the perfect addition.

1 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
About 1/4 cup any fruit preserves-any you fancy
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. The dough will be crumbly. Roll into teaspoon sized balls and make a small indentation in the center of the dough ball with your pointer finger. Fill the depression with fruit preserves. Bake for 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
