What are aces worth in Cribbage?

In Cribbage, are aces just worth 1, or all they also worth 11 (like in Blackjack)? For instance, how would you score a hand that was ace, four, jack, jack?

Thanks a lot.

    aces count as 1 in cribbage. the hand mentioned would count for 6 points, possibly 7 if one of the jacks matched the cut card. thats only counting the cards in your hand. You could have more points depending on what card was cut.

    Aces are always worth one.

    A, 4, J, J is worth 6 (J+4+A = 15 for 2, J[2nd Jack]+4+A = 15 for 4 and a pair of J make 6)

    However the cut card may add value to the hand.
