Peanut Butter And Jelly Filled Spiders

3 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoons strawberry jam
1 pound frozen bread dough-thawed

 Prepare two baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. 
In a small bowl, combine peanut butter and jam; set aside. 
Divide dough into sixteen equal pieces. It takes two pieces 
of dough to make one spider. 
 To make spider, take one piece of dough, on a lightly 
floured surface, divide this piece into four equal pieces  
for spider's legs. Roll each of these pieces into 
thin ropes, each being eight inches long. Lay each of these 
ropes, parallel and equal in length to each other, half 
inch apart onto prepared baking sheet. For the spider's body, 
divide a second piece of dough, one twice as large as the 
other. On a floured surface, pat larger piece of dough with 
the palm of your hand to flatten. Place two teaspoons peanut 
butter and jam mixture onto center of circle. Bring ends of 
dough up together and seal seams. Gently roll this piece of 
dough into a ball; set aside. Roll smaller piece of dough 
in a round ball (this will be the spider's head). Place 
peanut butter filled body and head centered on top 
of the four ropes of dough. The spider should now have 
eight legs. FInish with remaining pieces of dough to 
make eight spiders. Let rise until doubled in size, one hour. 
Bake in a 375 degree oven for ten minutes, or 
until golden brown.
