Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies!

When Gooseberry Patch asked me to be an Early Bird Book Reviewer I jumped at the chance. 
I have 2 books that I am in the process of reviewing and they have given me permission to post the recipes that I have tried.
This is the book that this recipe came out of.

Not yet released but you will have a chance to win one soon on my main blog so keep an eye out.
The recipe I chose had me curious. It contains no flour so for this GF family that was intriguing.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies!

1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Favorite jam or jelly

Combine all ingredients except preserves; mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Make a criss-cross pattern with a fork on top of the cookies.(I skipped this step. I used my thumb to make an indent into the cookies.) Carefully spoon jam into holes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes. Allow to cook 2 minutes on baking sheets; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 3 dozen. (I got about 2 dozen. I must have made them big. LOL!)

Big thumbs up from me and all the kids! (Dad wasn't home yet!)


  1. What, how did I miss that you had a cooking blog? These cookies look so good and easy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Isn't there any flour in this recipe?


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
