Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

These cookies got me thinking about all the different ways that I enjoy peanut butter and jelly.  You know I love a list… so here goes.
I love peanut butter and jelly:

on white bread with the crust cut off.
rolled up in a warm flour tortilla.
on a toasted bagel, excluding the dreaded onion bagel.
on a spoon.
at midnight.
at lunch from a plastic bag.
with a Capri Sun.
after a date.
after a breakup.
with a banana.
without a stinkin’ banana.
on Wednesday.
every Wednesday.
from now.
until forever.
amen.

I could go on. and on and. on. Really… let’s cut to the cookie.

Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

These flourless peanut butter cookies are my go-to cookie recipe.  There are only four ingredients.  This recipe is heroic.  They’re super simple, crisp little cookies.  Make a little indentation in the center of these cookies, add your favorite jam, bake em up… you’ve got peanut butter and jelly cookies.

It’s not rocket science.  It is super yumtown.

1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

about 1/4 cup any fruit preserves you fancy

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside.  In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes.  Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes.  The dough will be crumbly.  Roll into teaspoon sized balls and make a small indentation in the center of the dough ball with your pointer finger.   Fill the depression with fruit preserves.  Bake for 12 minutes, until lightly browned.  Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
