Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Yum
November is Peanut Butter Lover's Month, so I could not let the month end without doing a peanut butter recipe.  I have been wanting to give these peanut butter and jelly cookies a try for a while now and they did not disappoint.  They were so fun to make with my daughter and a total hit with the everyone who tried them.  I asked my husband if they tasted like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and he said yes, but so much better.  Yay!  I made two versions, strawberry jam and grape jelly.   I used my favorite cake/cookie method and these cookies came together quickly and easily.  All I can say is these cookies are fun to make and eat.  I will definitely be doing them again and again.

Ingredients:

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 Tbs of water jam or jelly of your choice as needed
  Directions:

Mix the eggs, water, oil and peanut butter well. Then add your cake mix and beat until it forms a cookie dough texture.




Roll cookie dough into desired size balls and place on a greased/sprayed cookie sheet.  I made mine a little smaller than a golf ball size.  You can also make smaller walnut size balls.  Then use your thumbs and make an indent in the middle of the cookie so you can place your jam/jelly inside it. 
Place about 1/2 a tsp of jam/jelly inside each indent.
 
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes for smaller cookies, 15-17 for larger cookies.  When the edges start to brown, your cookies are done.  Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet.  Once cool, transfer them to a plate.  Enjoy.




Makes about 1  1/2 dozen.

  7. Yum! I love that you did strawberry and grape jellies. People definitely fall in either the "I-like-strawberry-jelly" or "I-like-grape-jelly" camps. Kind of like the creamy versus crunchy peanut butter debate.
    Great recipe and fabulous pics! :)
