 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Shortening; room temp
  • 1/4 c Butter or margarine;
  • -softened
  • 1/2 c Peanut butter
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Brown sugar; packed
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/4 c Flour**
  • 3/4 ts Baking soda
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • Jelly or jam for filling


Mix thoroughly the shortening, butter or margarine, peanut butter,
granulated sugar, brown sugar & egg. Blend in remaining ingredients except
jam. Cover and chill.

Heat oven to 375. Shape dough into 3/4" balls. Place about 2 inches apart
on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes or until set but
not hard. When cool, put cookies together in pairs with jelly. Makes about
4 1/2 dozen cookies.

** If using self-rising flour, omit baking soda, baking powder & salt.

they are exceptional using orange marmalade. And if I do make a variety of
flavors, those seem to be the ones picked out first. So, that's what I use
