Peanut Butter And Jelly Cookies

 Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp. vegetable shortening
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Grape or strawberry jam and extra peanut butter, to finish

 Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Have ready a cookie sheet. Cream shortening, butter and peanut butter together with the sugars. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Sift flour with baking soda and salt. Add to egg mixture and continue mixing until thoroughly combined. Pinch off teaspoons of dough, roll into balls, and place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with fork. Bake until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool before spreading with peanut butter and jelly. Top with another cookie to make “sandwiches.”
