Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookie Recipe

Peanut butter is practically a food group in my house.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Between the peanut butter sandwiches, peanut stew, peanut chicken, and so many other foods, we eat a lot of peanut butter.

These peanut butter and jelly cookies are my favorite peanut butter cookies. The cookies are chewy and are a great mix of salty and sweet. They’re great topped with a little jelly or with some jelly sandwiched in between two cookies for a dessert sandwich.

  • 1/2 cup butter at cool room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter not natural
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped lightly salted peanuts
  • Jelly


  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter together.
  2. Add sugars, and beat until well-combined.
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla until combined.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
  5. Stir in chopped nuts.
  6. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour, or until firm.
  7. Toward the end of the chilling time, preheat oven to 350 F.
  8. Scoop out 1.5 tablespoons of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart. I've slightly flattened the cookies and left them as-is, and it doesn't seem to make much difference.
  9. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and middles are set.
  10. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove to wire rack, and let finish cooling.
  12. Top cookies with jelly or spread jelly between two cookies to make a sandwich.
