pb & j cookies

This is going to be short and sweet today. These cookies rock !!  I suggest you read thru this recipe quickly, make sure you have some ice cold milk on hand , and then get going and make these cookies now!
Here we go - I told you, short and sweet today!

pb & j cookies

3/4 c unsalted butter
3/4 c crunchy peanut butter (use your favorite)
1/4 c sugar +  some to roll the cookies in
3/4 c dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt ( 1 always use kosher salt in baking)
Jam of your choice - I prefer blackberry jam or grape jelly

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream butter with sugars for a minute, then mix in peanut butter and egg.  Mix in dry ingredients.
Roll dough into 1" balls, then  roll balls in sugar.  Place balls on prepared cookie sheet.  ( I use parchment all the time).   Using your thumb make an indentation into each cookie ball.  Fill each indentation with 1/4 tsp of jam.   Bake 12 - 15 minutes.  Allow to cool a bit, pour yourself a glass of cold milk and enjoy!!

Starting April 1st , I will be doing a month of April in Paris.
