Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut Butter and Jelly!
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 stick butter (8tablespoons)
1/3 cup white sugar and more for rolling
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup jelly (or more)

Preheat oven to 350
Line baking sheets with parchment
In a small bowl,  whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside
In the bowl of the mixer, cream together butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add sugars,
and beat until well combined. Mix in egg and vanilla. 
Add flour and beat until smooth
Using the medium scoop, scoop out balls of dough and roll in the extra sugar. I used about 1/2 a cup to get everything rolled in. There was some extra
Put the sugar coated dough balls onto parchment lined paper

Take your thumb, or rounded end of a wooden spoon and make and indentation in the cookies

Bake about 10 minutes.Remove from oven 

They will look like this. Using the round end of a wooden spoon (you really do not want to touch the cookies now) push down where you indented before. 

At this point you can fill with jelly or wait. If your jelly is a little loose, fill now.  
Return cookies to the oven for 6 minutes or so. Until all browned

Let cool on sheet for a few minutes. If you have not filled them before, fill before removing from sheet, just to set the jelly a little bit.

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.
