Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly Cookies

My girls and I love to bake….especially during the holidays! I remembered making a thumbprint cookie recipe with my Grandma and love to incorporate ones with memories when I am baking with my own kids. So here it is! Special thanks goes out to J.M. Smuckers® for sponsoring this post (originally published 10/15, affiliate links present)

We have our favorite recipes that we make each year, but like to incorporate a new one each year. This thumbprint recipe is super simple and only requires a few ingredients.

Next to my love of baking, involving my girls in the process and eating yummy desserts is fun. This is a must when making Christmas cookies in Dec. I am always looking for new desserts that are EASY to make.

These are the ingredients you’re going to want to take out. Allow the butter to sit out and get soft but not melted for the right consistency.

  • Flour
  • Almond extract
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Smuckers Fruit & Honey spread is what we used
  • Creamy peanut butter

First you will want to blend the softened butter and sugar together until smooth and add the almond and vanilla extract.

Then add your flour and fold that in until it looks similar to this. Take a heaping tsp. full of dough, roll it in a ball and place on your un-greased cookie sheet. Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 degrees now.

When making your thumbprint cookie recipe you’ll want to bake them at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. You want them to be barely brown on the outer edges. Then take out to cool.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

They will harden more when they are taken out and are best a bit underdone so they stay moist and flaky. Once you have the dough set just scoop about 1/3 tsp. of peanut butter in the thumbprint hole. Then add about 1/2 tsp of Smuckers spread.

  • We did half and half. Some had peanut butter and some just had our Triple Berry fruit spread. Both were good and such an easy thumbprint recipe.
