Peanut Butter and Jam Cups


1 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar

1 cup sugar

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup vegetable shortening

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

2 Tbs. hot water

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Mini foil cup liners

2/3 cup strawberry preserves

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, with mixer on medium-high, beat together sugars, peanut butter, and shortening until creamy and well combined, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat 2 minutes more. Dissolve baking soda in the hot water, and add to dough. Reduce mixer speed to low, and add flour; beat just to combine.
  2. Scoop tablespoons of dough into cup liners, and place on baking sheet. Using your finger, make small indentations in dough in center of each foil cup. Bake cups for 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and fill each cup's center with 1/2 tsp. of preserves. Makes 4 1/2 dozen.
