Peanut, Peanut Butter and JELLY

Peanut butter and jelly cookie - that's right peanut butter and jelly COOKIE. How did I not think of this before? I originally got the idea from my cooking board. I prettymuch used her recipe I just made the cookies bigger than hers (I think). On to the recipe....

1 cup pb

1 egg

1/4 cup white sugar

1/4 brown sugar

dash vanilla

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup flour

3-4tbsp grape jelly

1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. mix pb and sugars, then stir in egg and vanilla. Finally mix in flour and soda. Make balls a little less than 1 tbsp (if you can squeeze out 22, they are just under 100 calories each)[I used my pampered chef medium scoop so my cookies were closer to 2 tbsp]. Roll into balls [Again, I used my scoop so I didn't need to form the balls] and place on greased cookie sheet. Press very lightly with a fork to make criss-crosses - but don't flatten too much. [I put a peice of parchment paper over the cookies and used a spatula to squish down, I didn't want a criss cross] Using a very small measuring spoon or the end of a wooden spoon[I'm bad, I just used my thumb!], make a small depression in each cookie. Melt preserves so they are liquidy then spoon into each cookie. Bake for 8 minutes and cool completely before trying to move them(or else they crumble!) [Mine really took closer to 13 14 minutes]

  1. They look great. And isn't it strange that the top (your thumbprint) looks to be the shape of a in-shell peanut.
