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.
