Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

I love holiday baking!

When the house smells like sweet treats, the holiday music is playing and I am ignoring the pile of dishes I am in my happy place.

There is just nothing quite like baking treats for friends and family. I love surprising family and friends with wonderful treats they can enjoy during the holidays.

This year I decided to make Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies.

How can you go wrong taking our favorite childhood sandwich and updating it into a sweet treat. Plus you can do so many varieties just by changing out the jelly flavors!

Pre warning these cookies are good! I mean seriously you may need to make 2 batches so you have some good

Here is our favorite new cookie recipe!


We used strawberry jelly but you could use any flavor you like.
