Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

From: Southern Living 50 Favorite Cookies cookbook

1/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups AP flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup strawberry jam or grape jelly

Beat butter and peanut butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add egg and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, mixing well.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten balls in a crisscross pattern with a floured fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool.

Spread jam on bottoms of half the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

Well, this is not my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. But sandwiched together with the jelly I actually really liked these. I used grape jelly and raspberry jam. I'd like these again, using a different peanut butter cookie recipe, perhaps.
