A butter base cookie rolled in honey roasted peanuts and topped with creamy peanut butter and jam. A perfect replica of a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.
Serves: 24 Cookies
Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar ( I used NuNaturals Tagatose)
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup honey roasted peanuts, chopped small
  • ¼ jam, your favorite kind, I used Sugar Plum
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  3. In a medium bowl add flour and salt, mix until combined; set a side.
  4. In a large bowl beat butter and sugar. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla extract. Add flour mixture, and beat until combined.
  5. In a small bowl, add egg whites and mix until frothy. On a plate add chopped nuts.
  6. Roll dough into 1" balls. Roll into egg mixture then into nuts. Place on baking sheet and make a thumb print into the middle ( I used the back of a teaspoon)
  7. Bake in oven for 8 - 10 minutes or until nuts are lightly brown.
  8. Place on cookie rack to cool. Once cool, evenly divide the peanut butter into the thumbprint, then top with jam.
