Description

Peanut butter sugar cookies made to look like slices of bread and filled with jelly—the perfect back to school treat!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES:
  • ½ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • ¼ cups Plus 2 Tablespoons, Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ cups Plus 2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1-¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 2 Tablespoons Vodka
  • 2 drops Brown Food Coloring
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • ¼ cups Jelly (flavor Of Your Choice)

Preparation

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. With the mixer on low, gradually add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and beat until just combined.

Divide dough in half and roll each half into a rectangular block. Using your fingers, pinch along the middle of the top and along the two sides to form indentations along the length of the block so the dough looks like a bread loaf. Wrap each half in Saran wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

When dough is chilled, unwrap the dough and use a sharp knife to cut slices of “bread” in 1/4″ thickness. Place 1″ apart on a parchment paper or Silpat-lined cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes, or until edges just begin to brown. Cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To paint crusts onto the baked cookies, combine vodka and brown food coloring. Use a clean paint brush to brush mixture on the sides of all the cookies. Using vodka instead of water will prevent the cookies from getting soggy since the alcohol will evaporate!

To make the sandwiches, take one cookie slice and spread with jelly. Match cookie with another slice of similar size and make your PB&J sandwich!
