I read about these cookies a long time ago in a magazine issue of People (I think??) the one with Eva Longoria on it, about her cookbook. Anyway, there was an article in it where these cookies were shown and I fell in love with them… It just took me a long time to actually make them.
Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies:
- Make your favorite Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
- (Or use this one: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/peanut-butter-cookies-i/detail.aspx [but if it’s bad don’t blame me, I’ve never made those one in particular])
- 1/4 Tbsp measure
- Your Favorite Jam 🙂
Preheat oven to 375F. Form your peanut butter dough into 1 inche balls, and place on baking pan, flatten slightly. When all the balls have been slightly flattened, sprinkle them with the sugar. Bake for 7 minutes, then working quickly, remove the pan from the oven, and use the back of the 1/4 Tbsp measure press into each cookie leaving a dent in the middle of the cookie. Then use the 1/4 measure to spoon jam into each dent. Place the tray back into the oven and continue to bake for 7 more minutes. Remove from oven and move to a cooling rack.
Be careful about eating the cookies right out of the oven, the jam is like liquid LAVA. But so, so, so yummy. I made them with crunchy peanut butter, Omnomnomnom. A definte make again.
Oh, and earlier that day I decided to do a little food art- Yepp, I am a loser like that =D
I called him Octo-Naner. Ahahahhahaha!
