My oldest Loves a P B & J sandwich. So I thought why not take what she loves in a sandwich and make the cookie version. Let’s get started.
1 1/2 cups All Purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
3 Tbs organic vegetable shortening (or melted butter)
1 cup organic peanut butter
2 tsp organic teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
Preheat over to 350°
Mix together the vegetable shortening, peanut butter, vanilla extract, sugars and applesauce in a large bowl.
Combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
Gradually mix in the flour into your wet ingredients until the flour is fully incorporated.
Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls.
Using a fork, flatten the cookie and make a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes. Then let it finish cooling on a baking rack.
Once cooled add 1 tsp of jelly (to make your own jelly check out this recipe here) onto a cookie and top with another cookie. You can get creative with your fillings, use chocolate or whatever you like.
Yields about 24-26 individual cookies or 12-13 sandwich cookies.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it!
