Two classic flavours come together in these tasty cookies.
1 cup Flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
white sugar for rolling
1 jar of your favourite jam, jelly, or marmalade
Preheat your oven to 375F.
Whisk the flour, salt and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until smooth. Using a spoon, form 1-inch balls. Roll each in granulated white sugar then place on a baking tray. Bake for 5 minutes.
Gently push each cookie down with the back of a small spoon, flattening it and forming a small depression in the center. Fill the center with a small spoonful of your favourite jelly. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or so.
Who said baking a homemade dessert has to be difficult? Not me. This dessert could not be simpler and is fully customizable. It has 2 basic parts - the apple filling and the oatmeal topping. Choose any type of apple (or a combination), your favourite fresh or frozen berry, and any of the baking spices. Ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, or simply cinnamon all work.
