Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

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:


  • 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
  • Jelly

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream the peanut butter, shortening and brown sugar.
  3. Add the milk, vanilla and egg.
  4. Stir in the flour, salt and baking soda.
  5. Roll the dough into balls and place them on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  6. Press the balls of dough flat and then indent the middle with your thumb or the bottom of a rounded tablespoon.
  7. Fill each indent with jelly. 
  8. Bake for 7 - 8 minutes.
