It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Peanut Butter Jelly Cookies

½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup white sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

First, get two little cuties to help you!

Next, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the peanut butter mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 375º F. Make small balls of dough. Flatten with spatula. Cut with cookie cutter.

Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just set. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

Then, spread a layer of strawberry icing on one cookie. Top with another cookie to make a sandwich.

Then, we decorated ours with a little chocolate icing message for Valentine's Day. We put these in our treat tents along with a hug and a kiss :o)

Enjoy!  Oh, in case you are craving a little more peanut butter jelly time...

I'm linking this to my favorite linky parties this week!

These look like a blast to make -- especially with two cuties to help you :-) I'd make them with my two but neither of them will eat peanut butter --sigh.

I'm a new follower also.
