My brother e-mailed last night to let me know he had an urge for my peanut butter "jim jams." I remember the recipe as "jam gems" but no matter what you call it, they sure taste good!
Peanut Butter Jam Gems
1 tube "pop-n-fresh" biscuits
jam or jelly, your favorite flavor
Preheat oven as directed on the tube of biscuits. Pop open the can, remove and separate the biscuits and place on baking sheet. Flatten each biscuit slightly. Place a small dollop of peanut butter just off center on each biscuit; follow with a dollop of jam. Fold the biscuit over and press the edges to seal. Bake as directed, until done. Be careful when you serve these as the peanut butter and jam are very hot!
I first made this recipe in home economics class in junior high school. I brought the recipe home and everyone enjoyed it, so we prepared it often. Apparently it made an impression on my brother since he fixed it for himself last night and wrote to remind me about it.
Occasionally we varied the recipe by using some cinnamon and sugar in place of the peanut butter and jam. Mmmm, mmmm! I do need to fix this again soon. Thanks, brother dear, for the reminder!
