Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Who would believe you can get such a delectable cookie out of such a simple process and with so few ingredients? (That's right, there's no flour!) The not- too-sweet, deep nutty flavor -- topped with a touch of fruit -- is perfect for kids young and old. These cookies are so good that I need to remind you to limit yourself to one serving!
  • ¾ cup granular sugar substitute
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup creamy trans-fat-free peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup sugar-free jam, any flavor

Heat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix sugar substitute, egg, and vanilla together with an electric mixer on low for 3 minutes. Add peanut butter and baking soda. Mix on medium until dough comes together, about 30 seconds.

Form dough into 24 (2-teaspoon) balls and place on baking sheet 1 inch apart. Gently press your thumb into the center of each to make an indentation. Fill each indentation with ½ teaspoon jam.

Bake until lightly browned on the bottom, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
