Today is April Fools day but let me set your mind at rest, these Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich Cookies are 100% legit.
I just woke up (truth) and I'm already seeing loads of fake messages and posts on Facebook. To be honest, I still can't tell if they're April Fools related or if it's just Facebook taunting me to click over and check out ten awesome quotes for the day or dogs surfing some waves at the beach.So back to reality and Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich Cookies. A simple peanut butter cookie filled with a peanut butter frosting and a dollop of strawberry jam.Delectable!
I wanted to use a piping bag for the buttercream but couldn't find a nozzle to fit. I seriously need to work on my kitchen drawer tidiness because I know that nozzle exists. I ended up just spreading the filling onto the cookies, let's call things rustic and be done. A dollop of strawberry jam for the J in my PB and pop another cookie on top. Already Friday is looking magnificent my friends!
No cookie would be complete without a shot of snowy powdered sugar flying through the air from a well used sieve picked up from Goodwill for 50 cents, so here it is. Now all you have to decide upon is if you'll squeeze the filling out and lick around the cookie or just dive right in, take a bite and hope the buttercream doesn't land on your shoe? Such a dillema for a Friday, but I have faith in all of you. We're talking about cookies here people, make it happen!
How cool would be these be dipped in chocolate? I think super cool. If you do, post a picture on Instagram and slap a #foodnessgracious on it. I want to see your creations! Have an awesome weekend friends.
