PREHEAT oven to 325° F.

COMBINE cookie dough and flour in medium mixing bowl. Roll dough into 24, 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 14 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately make a depression in each cookie with the back of a 1/2 teaspoon measure. Fill each depression with 1/2 teaspoon of jam. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in single layer tightly covered.

• Dough can be made in advance, shaped into cookies and refrigerated until ready for baking.
• Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a larger batch.
