Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies!

When Gooseberry Patch asked me to be an Early Bird Book Reviewer I jumped at the chance. 
I have 2 books that I am in the process of reviewing and they have given me permission to post the recipes that I have tried.
This is the book that this recipe came out of.

Not yet released but you will have a chance to win one soon on my main blog so keep an eye out.
The recipe I chose had me curious. It contains no flour so for this GF family that was intriguing.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies!

1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Favorite jam or jelly

Combine all ingredients except preserves; mix until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Make a criss-cross pattern with a fork on top of the cookies.(I skipped this step. I used my thumb to make an indent into the cookies.) Carefully spoon jam into holes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes. Allow to cook 2 minutes on baking sheets; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 3 dozen. (I got about 2 dozen. I must have made them big. LOL!)

Big thumbs up from me and all the kids! (Dad wasn't home yet!)
