I flipped through several pages of recipe's to find the one that looked the best to me. There were lots of results, but I finally found "the one". I found it on a website called "Pip & Ebby", interesting name, I thought. The picture that won me over is below.
I know it, they look as good as they taste! I decided I absolutely had to share these with my readers because I would feel guilty keeping them all to myself. This recipe will make approximately 2 dozen cookies, depending how large you make them. I suggest you follow the recipe exactly, though. Here it is....the recipe that has been a big hit with my friends and family.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, combine:
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
With a hand-held mixer, beat the mixture on medium speed until just combined. Add 1 egg and beat until incorporated. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix until combined.
Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls with your hands. Place them onto ungreased baking sheets and press into the center of each cookie with your thumb to create a divot.
In each divot, place 1/2 teaspoon of jelly and 1/2 teaspoon of creamy peanut butter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
This recipe was copied exactly from the "Pip & Ebby" website. I would like to personally say a big thank you to them for posting this recipe, which has now become my favorite cookie recipe! I hope your friends and family enjoy them for years to come.
