Prep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins
 ½ cup butter, softened
 ¾ cup sugar
 ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
 1 cup peanut butter
 1 egg
 2 tsp vanilla
 1 ½ cups flour
 1 tsp baking soda
 ¼ tsp salt
 1 cup jam, divided

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

In a large bowl, or in a stand mixer, beat butter until creamy - about 2 minutes. Slowly add in sugars and beat until light and fluffy - another 2 minutes.

3

Add 1 cup peanut butter, and beat until combined.

4

Add egg and vanilla, and beat until combined.

5

In a second bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. With mixer on medium speed, add flour mixture. 1/2 cup at a time until just combined.

6

Roll 1 1/2" balls and place on prepared baking sheet, leaving 2" between each cookie. Use a fork or you hand, and gently press on the top of each ball, smashing them to about 1/2" thick. Use your thumb to press a dent into each cookie.

7

In a small bowl, stir 3/4 cup jam to smooth out, and remove chunks and lumps. Add 1 tsp of jam to each cookie. Be careful to keep the jam inside the spot you made with your thumb.

8

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.

9

While cookies finish cooling, stir remaining 1/4 cup jam until smooth. Add 1/4 - 1/2 tsp jam to the top of each cookie.

10

To make the cookies look fancy, melt 1/2 cup peanut butter, and drizzle over cookies. Sprinkle chopped up honey roasted peanuts over the top.

Store leftovers in a tupperware container.
