Once chilled, roll dough into 1" balls.  Next, roll in sugar.  Place on greased cookie sheet (use aluminum foil for easy cleanup).  Gently indent each cookie (I used a melon-baller) for the jelly.

I used strawberry preserves (but any jelly, jam or preserves would be fine).  Bake at 350\u00b0 F for 6-12 minutes, taking care not to over cook.
