I won first place with this recipe! I did not do the jam-thing, instead I pressed a Peanut butter cup to the center at about 7 minutes into baking and I WAS A BIGTIME WINNER WITH MY CO-WORKERS..THANK YOU!
Easy to make but rather dull, ...they do not expand during baking and the texture is sort of cardboardy (I can't think of another way to describe it). They needed more peanut butter flavor. I filled mine with melted chocolate.
I added a pinch of baking powder after reading the reviews on how they didn't spread out and these came out beautiful. I also dipped them in beaten egg whites and then rolled in crushed up peanuts. I then just used choc. chips in the center and red raspberry preserves and returned to the oven for one minute. They came out great with my changes!
Great recipe. I made balls of dough and dipped them in a cinnamon&sugar mixture before baking.. added just a little more sweetness as I had run out of jam.
This is a great recipe...I used raspberry preserves and strawberry jam on a few dozen each, then drizzled the tops with melted white chocolate..awesome! Thanks for this easy cookie dough recipe!
These were amazing! I did the first dozen with melted chocolate chips (35s in the microwave with a touch of butter)... they did not make it to the photo though!! Thanks for this recipe... A new family tradition at our house!
I'd give this recipe 10 stars if I could. What a fantastic idea! I've renamed them 'PB&J cookies'. They actually taste like a bite of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I have no idea why other reviews were so bad. 'Cardboard' taste? Hardly! They're perfect. I also filled some w/melted chocolate. 'Reese's cookies'. A new tradition for the holidays!!!!
i doubled the recipe, planning to use it as hostess gifts. that should have made 6 dozen according to the recipe, but i only got about 4 1/2, which wasn't enough. also, i found the texture dry and not peanut butter-y enough. it was ok, but i wouldn't use this recipe again.
