Ingredients4 h 50 m servings 132
- Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
- Beat butter, peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla together in a separate bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Add egg to butter mixture and beat on medium speed until blended. Scrape side of bowl down again.
- Beat flour mixture into butter mixture on low speed until just blended. Scrape bowl and mix a few more seconds.
- Scoop dough into 2 tablespoon-sized balls and arrange on a baking sheet. Cover baking sheet and refrigerate at least 4 hours (overnight is ideal).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper and arrange cookie balls atop paper.
- Bake cookies in the preheated oven until partially cooked, 11 minutes.
- Place raspberry jam in a bowl and stir until syrup consistency.
- Press a soda bottle cap into the center of each cookie until edges of cookies bulge and begin to crack, making an indentation. Fill each indentation with about 1 teaspoon jam.
- Bake cookies until edges are lightly browned, 7 minutes longer. Cool cookies completely on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack.

This isn't so much a review as a report of changes I made and the results in case anybody else wants to try. Swaps: gluten free flour blend, re-hydrated PB2 and home-canned hot fudge/plum sauce...
Used the exact recipe but didn’t chill the dough and they came out great! We’re gone in a day!
Submitter here. - You can swap in Wow Butter for the PB 1:1 with no real noticeable difference. I have been making these for years until my son was diagnosed with a peanut allergy, and just...
Oh these are so good. I had picked wild blackberries today and cooked them down and added sugar and vanilla to make a thick sauce. Decided thumbprint cookies would be perfect. And these are p...
Made the cookie part just like the recipe said. I used black raspberry preserves for the jam. If you like PBJ, then this cookie is the one for you! Everyone who ate one made the "yum" sound.
