Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Everyone loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and peanut butter cookies have always been a favorite of mine. So why not combine the two?

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
Jam or Jelly of your choice

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Mix first six ingredients
3. Add rest of ingredients (except for the jelly/jam)
4. Mix well
5. Roll into balls and press thumb into center
6. Fill thumbprint depression with jam or jelly
7. Bake 8-10 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet

Note: Sprinkle top of cookies with sugar to add a bit of extra sparkle and sweetness

You can now buy these cookies from our shop on Etsy!


  1. Joel these sound really good! I am sure you could do them Gluten Free too right, just use rice flour instead of wheat flour? Such a good idea starting a food blog :-)

  2. Redrose, I would certainly think so, but I've never used rice flour, so couldn't swear to it. Thanks!
