Looks yummy, right? I love PB&J and I love cookies, so you know this was a recipe that got printed! Unfortunately there was no web address printed on the bottom, so I have no clue where it came from… sorry!
But anyways, here is my take on this recipe: It needs some tweaking. What I didn’t like about it was the texture of the cookies. They came out gritty from the sugar, and they definitely could use some flour to make them more of a real cookie. That being said, I’m going to post it anyways because it seems like something kids might love to help make, but I don’t have kids so what do I know?
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- Grape Jelly
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Mix together the peanut butter and egg. Add sugar and mix well.
- Roll into 1-inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Leave some dough for the topping.
- Keep a small bowl of water nearby. Using a slightly wet finger, make wells in the balls. Fill each well with a little bit of jelly.
- Roll and flatten a little piece of dough to place on top of each cookie. Using a wet finger, gently blend the edges together to seal.
- Bake for 5-10 minutes.
- Let cool completely (I ended up having to refrigerate mine so they’d stay together)
It’s a quick and easy cookie that doesn’t need a lot of ingredients, so you get out what you put in. I still like the idea though, and I’m going to give it another try using a more traditional peanut butter cookie recipe.
