Did you know November is National Peanut Butter Month? It is and I'm throwing some jelly stuffed peanut butter cookies at you for it. These cookies are incredibly soft and each bite as a little strawberry jelly in it. I. love. it. I'm a sucker for peanut butter and jelly anything, like my peanut butter and jelly fudge or peanut butter jelly coffee cake.
My friend Jennifer from the blog Bake or Break sent me her brand spanking new baking cookbook Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking(aff. link) to check out. You can see it peeking out from beneath the cookies that I made. These cookies are from her book and they are so amazing.
The recipes aren't just 5 ingredients though, it's assumed you have a stocked pantry with some staples like eggs, sugar, butter, flour. I know I have all those things always. There's a +2 ingredient, +3 ingredient, +4 ingredient and +5 ingredient chapter. The ingredients can range from strawberry jam, peanut butter, cream cheese, pecans and the list goes on.
I'm so glad that I chose this recipe to make. Those peanut butter cookies are so tender. They have the most delicious jelly surprise. You must try jelly stuffed peanut butter cookies. Put it on your bucket list.
It was a ridiculously tough decision to make these jelly stuffed peanut butter cookies. I wanted to do the strawberry pot pies, but I decided to wait until I can get some fresh picked strawberries this spring. You should see the recipe for that. It looks so juicy and vibrant.

I love this concept. Of course, peanut butter cookies are wonderful by themselves, but this really takes them up a notch.

There peanut butter cookies would definitely make an awesome addition to my party this weekend. Lovely surprise for everyone. The jelly inside is a really good idea, maybe I can try and use different kinds.. it will be so good.

Can you use the peanut butter and jelly that are in the same jar
I don't think that would work.
I wouldn't recommend it.
