This classic flavour combination is a great way to add a tart-sweet zip to a peanut butter cookie. Any flavour of jam or jelly can be used, though smoother, less chunky ones are the easiest to spread or pipe.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam

Method

In large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy; beat in sugar. Beat in peanut butter and egg; beat in vanilla until smooth. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stir into peanut butter mixture.

Roll by 1 tsp into balls; place, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Using fork dipped in flour or granulated sugar, press to flatten to about 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness.

Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until golden on bottoms and edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 5 days.)

Pipe or spread 1/2 tsp jam onto flat side of half the cookies; sandwich with remaining cookies. Let stand until set, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to
2 days.)
