Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
Extra granulated sugar, for rolling dough
Jam (any flavor)


~Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars together until light and fluffy.

~Add egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing until well combined. Whisk flour and soda together and then add to the wet ingredients. Chill the dough until firm.

~Form 1-inch balls of dough and roll in granulated sugar. Use your thumb to make an indent and slightly flatten the dough, and fill the well with some jam.

~Place another small piece of dough on top, to make it look more like a sandwich.

~Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
