I have always loved peanut butter and jelly together. This cookie uses the premise of the ever popular thumbprint cookie, and the equally popular peanut butter cookie. In combination you have a cookie that is very fun with a familiar popular taste. What a treat! Use your favorite flavor of jam or jelly,...or make an assortment.

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprints

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place all ingredients (except jam) in a large bowl. Use hands to mix well.
  • 2Make 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch balls. You should have 20. Place on cookie sheet, leaving room to spread out. If you have a large enough cookie sheet, they should fit 4 wide and 5 long.
  • 3Gently press with thumb in the center of each ball to make an indentation. Don't press too hard. It is normal for the dough to crack a bit.
  • 4Spoon a bit of jam in each center of cookie. Do not over fill.
  • 5Bake in a 325 degree oven for 22-24 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool until warm on cookie sheet. The cookies are too fragile to transfer when they are hot.
  • 6When sufficiently cooled, transfer cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool completely.
  • 7Store airtight between layers of waxed paper.
    Make 20 cookies.
