PB & J Cookies

Move on over Cowboy Cookies, there is a new favorite cookie in town!
This recipe idea came from the Better Homes and Gardens Special Fall Baking issue which, by the way, has lots of fabulous recipes in it! :)
I have changed it a bit to utilize my Baking Mix. It is a basic oatmeal cookie with peanut butter chips stirred into the batter and a dollop of jam on top. We are not big jam or jelly eaters so I have been using up homemade jam I had in the cupboard. The picture above has two with plum and one with peach.

PB & J Cookies

1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups Baking Mix
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups old fashioned or quick cooking oats, uncooked
1 cup peanut butter chips
Jam or jelly

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add Baking Mix, cinnamon and oats; mix well. Stir in peanut butter chips; mix well. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Make a depression in the top of each cookie and fill with about 1/2 teaspoon of jam or jelly of your choice. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for one minute on cookie sheet then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookes.
These have become THE cookie at the Farmer's Market recently. I even had a lady call me this week and order two dozen for this Saturday. I hope you give them a try. :)

I'm not a big jelly/jam gal either, but sometimes it adds just a tad moisture to a cookie and it's just enough! They look YUMMY!

Peach and peanut butter sounds like a good combonation. Good job.

Ida said...

These do look good. I'm not a PB & J fan but the cookie might be a different story.

Please pass the cookies!!!

Michaele said...

p.s. the cinnamon and oats make them healthy enought to pig out just a little on.

YUMMY! I eat peanut butter & jelly sandwiches quite a bit (apparently I'm still in grade school) so these sound good!

I love when you post new ways to use your biscuit mix. Since I do use a lot of it.
