Welcome to the forty-second post in my year-long Cookie Series, where I want to bring you a new and delicious cookie recipe every Tuesday of 2015!
There's only 10 posts left in the Cookie Series?
Wow, I've eaten a lot of cookies.
And for those of you who have been looking at my cookie posts for awhile, you've seen a lot of cookies. Thanks for sticking around and reading my posts week after week. You're awesome!
I've eaten enough cookies this year that I could be understandably sick-and-tired of cookies.
But I'm not. I don't know if it's normal, but even after eating more than 42 types of cookies this year, I still like 'em.
Here's the 42nd post in the Cookie Series:
PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY COOKIES
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp. milk
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Cream the peanut butter, shortening and brown sugar.
- Add the milk, vanilla and egg.
- Stir in the flour, salt and baking soda.
- Roll the dough into balls and place them on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
- Press the balls of dough flat and then indent the middle with your thumb or the bottom of a rounded tablespoon.
- Fill each indent with jelly.
- Bake for 7 - 8 minutes.
