Directions for: Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies


1 cup flour

1 tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda

½ cup creamy peanut butter

¼ cup butter, melted

½ cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla

White sugar for rolling

A jar of your favourite jam, jelly or marmalade


1. Preheat your oven to 375F.

2. Whisk the flour, salt and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until smooth. Using a spoon, form 1-inch balls. Roll each in granulated white sugar then place on a baking tray. Bake for 5 minutes.

3. Gently push each cookie down with the back of a small spoon, flattening it and forming a small depression in the center. Fill the center with a small spoonful of your favourite jelly. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or so.
