And now, let’s talk a little bit more about these PBJ Thumbprint Cookies!
I love making thumbprint cookies around Christmas. There is something so festive about them. And my favorite variety is a peanut butter thumbprint cookie! Because, in case you didn’t know, we love peanut butter around my house! These PBJ Thumbprint Cookies are nearly identical to the Peanut Butter Blossoms I made last year with two changes – one, I used jelly instead of chocolate and two, I used granulated sugar instead of colored sugar. Is it cheating to essentially make the same recipe two years in a row? Maybe, but I couldn’t help myself because we loved these so much last year! The cookie is super soft and full of peanut butter flavor, and they couldn’t be easier to make.
I add the jam to the cookies after they have baked. I tried it both ways, but I think the cookie looks prettier when the jam is added after the baking rather than before.
And now, on to the GIVEAWAY! Hooray!!!
