Scale

Ingredients

Cookies:
1 cup Kraft peanut butter
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

sprinkle of nutmeg

Filling:
5 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup Kraft peanut butter
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/2 jar Bonne Maman’s Strawberry and Wild Strawberry Jam


Instructions

Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), cream together peanut butter and butter on high until light and airy.
  3. Add both sugars and continue to beat on high until sugar is incorporated.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla; mix just until eggs are blended.
  5. Add all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Using a rubber spatula, mix until well combined.
  6. Using your hands, roll dough into a 1.5 inch ball. Place on parchment lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Using the tines of a fork, press each ball of dough down. Rotate fork and press again if you wish to make a cross-hatch pattern.
  7. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until puffed up. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly on sheet until firm enough to move to a cooling rack using a spatula. Allow to cool completely before filling.

Filling:

  1. In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), cream together cream cheese and peanut butter on high until light and airy.
  2. Add icing sugar and continue to beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Using a knife or off-set spatula, spread about 1 tbsp of filling onto flat side of peanut butter cookie. Add 2-4 tsp (depending on your personal preference) of jam. Gently place another peanut butter cookie on top, creating a sandwich. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 4 days.
