HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY COOKIES
To make a batch of jelly cookies, combine peanut butter, an egg, and all-purpose flour together. Roll into balls, make a small hole in the center, spoon in a bit of jelly, and bake them at 350 F for about 8 minutes. Easy peasy, right?
Once peanut butter cookies have cooled, pipe a bit of peanut butter on top of each and devour them… while sipping your fave beverage.
It is the type of recipe that even a child can prepare it… and they are beautiful! Get creative and arrange them with berries for an extra nice dessert table display.
In addition, these thumbprint cookies are so cute and delish that they make great presents to give away as well, and they can also be served at snack time — either at home or at school.
Now tell me, is there any excuse left for not making them?
Enjoy them as also other peanut treats.
OTHER PEANUT TREATS:
4-Ingredient Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
- 6 oz creamy peanut butter plus more to pipe on top of the cookies
- 1 large egg at room temperature
- 5 oz all-purpose flour (or GF flour for a GF version)
- 8 teaspoons sugar-free strawberry jelly or other flavor of your choice
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients until obtaining a homogeneous mixture. Using a cookie scooper or a tablespoon as measurement, roll dough into balls, place onto the lined baking sheet, and make a hole in the center using the stick of a wooden spoon. Don't poke the hole all the way through-- just more or less halfway deep.
- Fill each hole with about 1/2 teaspoon of jelly. Bake for about 7-10 minutes or just until cookies set.
- Transfer baking sheet to a rack and let cookies cool. Then, pipe a bit of peanut butter on top of each cookie. If you are not on a sugar-free diet, you can sprinkle a bit of sugar sprinkles on top of the piped peanut butter if desired. Enjoy these peanut butter and jelly cookies with your favorite beverage.
1. Variations: Use Nutella, cookie butter, or another nut butter instead of peanut butter. If using Nutella, fill the hole with it once cookies bake and have cooled.
2. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add about 1/3 cup sugar or a baking sugar substitute to the dough.
