peanut butter and jelly cookies

IMG_4170

My husband LOVES peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (his comfort food) and one of his favorite sweet treats that I make are PB & J cookies. They are simple and a fun twist on classic flavors.

Lately my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe is from Martha Stewart-

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda


Mix sugars, butter, peanut butter together

Add egg and vanilla and mix well

Add flour and baking soda and mix everything together.

Next, scoop out dough and roll into balls.

Press down the dough ball onto a cookie sheet and with your thumb poke a hole in the middle.

Use you favorite jam and fill each hole.

Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. I made my cookies small and baked for around 9 minutes.
