Wonderful Wednesday

Welcome to the first Wonderful Wednesday! Today is a real treat. I'm not sure where the idea came from (might have been an e-mail or on pinterest) but we made PB&J cookie sandwiches. I used the basic no flour peanut butter cookie recipe, baked them and let them cool. I then matched them up with another cookie that was about the same size and filled them with peanut butter and cherry jelly. Needless to say they were a hit and we had them with our lunch.
Don't they look yummy!

The cherry jelly we use is local and all natural, read you labels as you never know where they can sneak gluten in.

Peanut Butter Cookies
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups sugar (for the above cookies I used 1 cup sucanat and 3/4 cup sugar)
2 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine peanut butter and sugar together and mix till well combined. Slowly add eggs one at a time and mix till combined. Then add the rest of the ingredients blending well after each addition. With using the sucanat they didn't roll well but the did stick together so I squished them into cookie shapes. Make sure you bake on parchment or grease your cookie sheets to prevent them from sticking. Bake cookies 8-10 minutes depending on the size you make. A good sandwich size like in the picture took the full 10 minutes in my oven. Let cool till set and move them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Once they are cooled make your sandwiches with them. They almost reminded me of a certain snack cake that makes PB&J pies like their oatmeal pies. What is a treat from childhood that you miss?
