This is a delicious recipe that is a great comfort food. It's also a great one to make with the kiddos. It's made from stuff almost every kitchen has. If the kids are stuck at home on a snow day, or if you just want something fun simple and cheap to do to spend time with them; then this is something perfect to try.
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Nonstick cooking spray
4 teaspoons reduced-sugar grape jelly
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and sugar together until thoroughly combined. Add the peanut butter and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. The batter will be thick at this point, now it is time to scoop. Use about a tablespoon portion, drop the batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray a small offset spatula with cooking spray and press the balls down until they are 1/3-inch thick; press a little more deeply in the center. Fill each with 1/4 teaspoon of the grape jelly and spread it in a thin layer. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Let the cookies cool; this part is really important, because it is when the cookies firm up and get the perfect crunch.
This recipe may sound weird, but it is very good.
