PB & J Cookies
This cookie screams 'fun for kids' to me, too!
PB&J Cookies (from My Baking Heart)
1 c peanut butter
1 c sugar
1 lg egg
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 c jelly
2 tbsp Nutella (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine peanut butter, sugar, egg, and flour in a large bowl & mix until well combined. Roll the dough into small balls and place on a baking sheet (about 15 to a sheet). The dough is a little crumbly, so I would squish each piece in my hands before rolling them into a ball shape.
Using a small rounded spoon, make an indent in the center of each cookie, deep enough to allow for jam filling. If using, place about a 1/4 teaspoon of Nutella into each cookie. Place about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Jelly on each cookie (don’t worry if the jelly overflows a little, it will pretty much hold its shape through the cooking process). Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let set and cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes before eating.
