Kid-friendly recipe - Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
(NC) - A favorite among the young, and the young at heart, Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies offer a twist on a traditional flavour combination and are easy to make.
- 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup jelly of your choice
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, combine all ingredients, except jelly, and beat at medium-high speed until the mixture forms a dough and cleans the side of the bowl. Scoop dough out using a teaspoon and, using your palms, roll into 1-inch balls. Arrange 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, make a round depression in the middle of the cookie. Spoon jelly into depressions.
Bake in 325 F (162 C) oven for 15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Using a wide turner, transfer cookies to wire cooling racks to cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container.
