These Peanut Butter and Jelly cookies are a fun, new take on traditional peanut butter cookies. My kids actually like them BETTER than the regular kind.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, the baking powder, and the salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth.
  • Add the egg and mix well.
  • Add the milk and the vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly.
  • Make dough into balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons or a traditional-sized cookie scoop) then place onto ungreased cookie sheet, leaving several inches between for expansion.
  • Using the handle of a wooden spoon or your thumb, press a hole into the top of each ball.Do not flatten out. Keep the dough round. It will expand.
  • Place about 1/2 teaspoon of jelly into each hole so the jelly just fits in the hole.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cookies may appear to be underdone, but they are not.
  • Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
