    PBJ Cookies. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to visit little country markets and fruit stands. I'm always amazed by the variety of jams and jellies I find. Since the cooked fruit is easier to digest, I am always thinking of new ways to incorporate the jams and jellies into my son's diet. Here is just one of many.

    - 3/4 cup of your favorite nut butter
    - 1/2 cup butter
    - 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    - 3 tablespoons milk (rice milk will work if dairy is a problem)
    - 1 tbs. vanilla
    - 1 egg
    - 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
    - 3/4 tsp. salt
    - 3/4 tsp. baking soda
    - 1/2 cup fresh jam/fruit preserves


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine the butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat until well blended. Mix in the egg. In another bowl, combine the flour, sat and baking soda. Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an un-greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. With your thumb or the back of a teaspoon, put a small indentation into each cookie. Fill each cookie with a teaspoon of fresh preserves or jam of your choice. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown. Remove cookies and cool completely before serving.
