Plate of cookies.I love peanut butter cookies, but had never had the PB&J version. My daughter stopped by today for a visit and we decided to make a batch. The end result was dessert before dinner. They were scrumptious.


Total Time: 1.25

Yield: 30 + cookies


  • .5 cups butter, softened
  • .5 cups peanut butter
  • .5 cups white sugar
  • .5 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1.25 cups unbleached flour
  • .75 tsp baking soda
  • .5 tsp baking powder
  • .25 tsp salt
  • fruit jam, any flavor


  1. In bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars.
  2. Beat in egg.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl and gradually add to butter and sugar mixture.
  4. At this point you can cover and chill for 30 minutes to an hour. However, I found the consistency firm enough to continue without this step.
  5. Roll the dough into 1.25 inch balls.
  6. Place on greased cookie sheets and make a depression in the center using your thumb.
  7. Cookie dough on sheet, adding jam.
  8. Place .25 tsp. of jam (your choice, we used marionberry) into the thumbprint.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 13 minutes or until bottoms begin to brown.

  11. Allow to cool a few minutes on the cookie sheet, just long enough that they have set up a bit.
  12. Remove and continue cooling on a wire rack, if you have one. We simply placed them in a single layer on a serving plate. Enjoy.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar in a medium bowl. Beat in the peanut butter, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in the flour and salt.
