Jif and Jelly Stars
Makes 48 cookies
1/2 cup Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups Smucker’s Strawberry or Grape Jelly
Various sizes of star shaped cookie cutters
In large bowl, mix Jif, sugar, butter and egg.
In a separate bowl. Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the
peanut butter mixture and mix well.
Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Wrap each portion in plastic wrap or
waxed paper and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
Remove portions from refrigerator and place each portion between 2 sheets of
plastic wrap or waxed paper. Roll each portion into a "sheet" about 1/8-inch
thick. (Refrigerate dough again if it becomes too soft to handle).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a large star cutter cut the dough into
stars. Using a small star cutter cut "windows" in half the cookies. Transfer
cookies to a non-stick baking sheet, leaving a 1/2-inch between them.
Bake all cookies 5-6 minutes or until they’re just starting to brown. Using a
spatula, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. When cookies have cooled,
spread the jelly on the plain cookies and top with the "window" cookies..
