Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies #SundaySupper

Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Innovation is one of the best things about America.  We might not be top in math or science, but our constant ability to think outside the box is impressive and inspiring.  Anything is possible because we believe it is.  In all realms, from food to technology, we are never satisfied.  We believe there is always room for improvement.  I say that innovative spirit is way more important than having the best grades on paper.  Those grades will never go as far as innovation.

I like to think I can be pretty innovative.  When I’m writing, it’s important for me to think of new and exciting stories and new and exciting ways to tell those stories.  It’s fun to sit at my computer and type something no one has ever typed before.

Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Blogging has also inspired innovation in my life . . . or at least my kitchen!  Whether I’m mashing some new flavors together or turning my favorite pie into cookies, there’s no way I’d rather spend a day than whipping up a super cool treat.

The other thing about innovation is it doesn’t always work out.  I have yet to impress an agent with my creative ideas and sometimes those recipes are total failures.  But the other thing about innovation is that it’s infectious.  The energy it gives me makes me immediately return to the drawing board, knowing gold will soon strike.

Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

I came up with the idea for these Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies unsure if they’d turn out.  I thought and hoped they would, but it was still a risk.  With fingers crossed, I took them out of the oven and busted one open, the pretty purple blackberry jam greeting me.  Success!  Not only are these gluten free cookies giant, delicious, and sturdy (no crumbly cookies here!), they also taste just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I hope these cookies inspire you to do something innovative in your life!

Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 7 Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

About ¼ cup jam (I used Smucker’s seedless blackberry)

Instructions

Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda, and vanilla until fully combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop 7 rounds of dough and place them, spaced as far apart as possible, on the baking sheet. Flatten the balls of dough and place about 1 teaspoon of jam in the center of the flattened dough.

Scoop 7 additional balls of dough and place on top of the jam. Using your fingers, smooth the dough over the jam and seal the edges, making sure as little jam as possible is peeking out. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes, rotating halfway through if necessary, until they are crinkled and slightly firm on top. Serve warm or cool completely on tray. Cookies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature about an hour or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Notes

Additional chilling time is required
