PB&J in a bite size portion is the perfect treat on the go! Betsy’s mini peanut butter and jelly coolie bite is full of flavor and fun to eat. There is a twist, too! Instead of PB Betsy uses her cinnamon seed butter. Be creative and try different flavors of jams and jelly and even try making it with our almond, cashew, or peanut butter!
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour or gluten free flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 c unsalted butter room temperature
1/4 c sugar
1/2 c light brown sugar packed
1 large egg room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mousse Filling Ingredients:
3 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 c Betsy’s Best Cinnamon Seed Butter Butter
1/2 c jam or jelly seedless
Step By Step PB&J Cookie Bites Recipe Directions:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a mini sized muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside. Beat butter and Betsy’s Best until smooth and add sugars and beat on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 2-3mins). Reduce speed and add egg and vanilla. Beat until combined and add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Using a small cookie scoop and scoop dough into muffin tins, press down to flatten slightly.
Step 2: Bake for 10-12 mins or until lightly browned and mostly set. Remove from oven and immediately use the small cap of the vanilla to press firmly down in the center to create a well. Cool in pans for 10 mins, then place on wire rack to cool completely.
Peanut Butter Mousse Directions:
In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese and Betsy’s Best until smooth and place in refrigerator until ready to assemble.
Spoon a teaspoon of raspberry jam into each cookie cup. Add the peanut butter mousse on top of raspberry jam and top with a dollop of jam as a garnish. Refrigerate until set (approx. 2 hours). Serve cold and eat within 2-3 days. Or freeze and eat later on.
Betsy’s PB&J cookie bites are a hit at every party she brings them too. Even better, all those kids with peanut allergies can eat them. If peanut allergies aren’t an issue you can make them with Betsy’s Best Cinnamon Peanut Butter or Cinnamon Almond Butter!
