Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies




  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar in a medium bowl. Beat in the peanut butter, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour and salt.
  3. Form the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll them in peanuts and place about 2 inches apart on a large cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 5 minutes. Using a small melon baller or your thumb (but be careful not to burn yourself), make a deep indentation in the center of each cookie so that it will flatten slightly. With the melon baller, spoon about 1 teaspoon of the preserves into each cookie; do not overfill.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes longer, until the cookies are golden and cracked.
  5. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  6. The cookies can be stored for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

Yields about 2 1/2 dozen (1 per servings).
