  • 1/2 cup regular or butter flavored shortening I used butter flavored
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter crunchy or creamy okay
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup 4.5 oz all-purpose flour
  • Some Hell Fire Pepper Jelly
  • Extra peanut butter for filling sandwiches


  • Preheat the oven to 325F and have ready a large, ungreased baking sheet.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the shortening, salt, baking soda and peanut butter together. Beat in both of the sugars and the vanilla. Beat in the egg.
  • By hand or using the lowest speed of the mixer, stir in the flour. Using a rounded ½ teaspoon measure, scoop up dough and shape into small balls. Arrange the small balls on the baking sheet spacing about 1 1 ½ cinches apart. Using a damp fork, press the balls down and make criss-crosses. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until edges are brown and cookies appear done. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  • When cookies are completely cool, sandwich a little peanut butter and some Hell Fire Pepper Jelly between two cookies. Repeat until you’ve made about 45 or 50 little sandwiches.
