Peanut Butter Jewel Thumbprint Cookies

My hubby can exist on peanut butter and jelly, I mean there are few days that go by that he doesn't find a way to snack on peanut butter.   He even puts peanut butter on his pancakes, I tell you he's a total peanut butter lover!  So when I decided to bake a peanut butter cookie, I knew I had to find a way to add jelly!  Yep his favorite sandwich in a cookie! I know, he is going to love this idea,  Peanut Butter Jewel Thumbprint  Cookies!
I had made some white peach jam last summer (find the recipe here) and I just knew it would look so pretty on this cookie. But I think grape jelly or strawberry jelly or jam would also rock this little cookie.
