VIDEO RECIPE: Peanut Butter & Raspberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

Like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich rolled in sugar these PB&J thumbprint cookies are a sweet treat with a touch of nostalgia.

Instead of using regular smooth peanut butter Caroline Wright uses The Bee’s Knees peanut butter which gives this regular lunchbox cookie a delightful hint-of- honey flavor.

Add these to your holiday cookie trays and they’ll be gobbled up immediately!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 15 cookies


3/4 all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup The Bee’s Knees peanut butter
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup light-brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup raspberry jam


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine peanut butter, butter, light-brown sugar and 1/4 cup granulated sugar; beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture just until combined.

3. Using a cookie scoop or leveled tablespoon measure, form dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls of dough in remaining ¼ cup granulated sugar and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, about 1-inch apart. Bake 10 minutes until cookies are puffed; remove from oven and use the back of a rounded ½-teaspoon measure to make an indentation on top of each cookie.

4. Return cookies to oven to bake until golden brown around edges, 3 to 5 minutes more. Let cookies cool completely on sheet pans. Spoon ½ teaspoon jam into each cookie.
