These cookies are one of the most fun I’ve created in a while. Let me tell you the story of them. Don’t worry, it won’t take long!
It started out when my six year old niece knocked on my door to give me a picture she drew of me. Let’s not mention her ulterior motive of wanting a treat before she goes back home. 😉 Anyway, I was just getting ready to bake some cookies, so I invited her to stay and “help” me bake. As I hadn’t decided yet what I was going to bake, I invited her to dig through my baking cabinet and find some stuff she wanted to use.
After considering a bunch of stuff, she pulled out these two items.
To be honest, she didn’t think they were peanut butter chips, she thought it was chocolate. And she had this concoction in mind that involved melting, drizzling, decorating and cupcakes. But being the smart aunt that I am, I was able to redirect her to cookies. Phew. With the combination of peanut butter and strawberry, my mind went straight to good ol’ fashioned pb&j. With my niece’s consent, we got started baking. The final product was better than I could have imagined! I knew the kids would love it, but I wasn’t sure if the adults would. Well let me just say that while sitting around the table shmoozing, the adults finished them all. I guess everyone loves PB&J!
I have to tell you the epilogue. I kinda struggled over whether or not to post this recipe, because I have a PB&J Sandwich Cookie in my new cookbook. I didn’t want to overshadow that one, but ultimately I decided that these are totally different, and worthy of being shared too! Those are dense, peanut buttery cookies, sandwiched with strawberry jam. These cookies are strawberry flavored, and dotted with peanut butter chips.
Anyway. You know you want them. Go and get baking!
