So as some of you may know I am part of the Iron Chef Challenge and because this Challenge "secret ingredient " was Clabber Girl Baking Powder; I thought it would be best to come up with a cookie that uses this ingredient. So I was looking at the label and I noticed it was a little girl on the can. So I thought to myself, I want to make a recipe that brings back a childhood memory. I remembered hot summer afternoons with my 2 sisters and swimming in my grandmothers pool. It was one of those fantasy pools before big rocks and grottoes were cool, for a pool. It had a waterfall and a slide made of river rocks and a beautiful river rock pool and patio.
My Mom and Grammy would always make a platter of Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches cut in triangles like tea sandwiches and it was always served with homemade lemonade from her beautiful garden. It was always a special time for me and my sisters and cousins. So I thought to myself why don’t I make a cookie that has Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies Made in two different ways.
When I was a kid my grandmother would make home made Raspberry Preserves and Cherry Preserves. So I couldn’t decide which way I would make them so I created 2 kinds because she always served 2 kinds of Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches.
