Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 stick butter room temperature
  • 8 oz smooth peanut butter
  • 4 oz raspberry jelly
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Using a stand mixer, cream the cream cheese, butter, peanut butter and jelly until completely smooth. Be sure to scrape any of the mixture stuck to the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the brown sugar and cream for 2-3 minutes, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until incorporated. (About 1-2 minutes.)
  • Add the flour, about 1/2 cup at a time until all the flour is incorporated.
  • Refrigerate mix till firm, approximately one hour.
  • Once firm, roll 1-inch balls spaced 2-inches apart on pre greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Flatten them slightly with the bottom of a glass or using a fork to make hash marks.
  • Bake until bottoms are golden and cookies are just set, approximately 8-10 minutes per tray.
