pb&j coooookies

one of the guys j works with had asked me a few months ago to make him pb&j cookies.
just got around to it now…oops!
they were super easy to make and extremely tasty so i decided to share the recipe with you!

recipe adapted from: Goseberry Patch’s Seasons For Sharing
(this book is a treasure from my nana and i absolutely adore it!)

pb&j cookies

1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1 c brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
jelly/jam (i used raspberry but any flavor will work!

cream butter, peanut butter and sugar together; blend in egg and vanilla until fluffy. set aside. combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; gradually mix into peanut butter mixture. roll into balls; arrange on lightly greased baking sheets. make an indentation in the center of each ball with the back of a spoon; fill with jelly. bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

they’re not the loveliest things in the world but let’s be honest, i made them for marines. they’ll eat just about anything.
a few notes:
-i used 1/4 c unsalted butter and a 1/4 c salted butter. i don’ t think you’re actually supposed to use salted butter when baking but they turned out just fine. believe me i had four. again, oops!
-i baked them for 13 minutes.
-lay down parchment paper because the jelly moves around a bit and sometimes drips down the sides which makes a mess.

enjoy dear readers!
let me know how they turn out if you decide to make them!
