Yield: Makes 15 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1 cup sugar or natural cane sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup fruit jam or jelly

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla on low speed until well combined.
  3. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough 1 1/2-inches apart onto the baking sheet. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, drop the dough with a spoon.
  4. Flatten the dough balls with the bottom of a glass until the dough is slightly taller than half an inch.
  5. Make a slight indent 1/8-inch deep with a clean milk jug cap in the center of each cookie.
  6. Spoon a teaspoon of jam inside of the indented center.
  7. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are golden around the edges. Allow the cookies to rest on the counter for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
