Peanut Butter Cookies Made 3 Ways: Take a classic peanut butter cookie and make Jam Thumbprints, Nutella Thumbprints or Classic PB Cookies!
In case you haven’t noticed, I may have a little love affair with peanut butter. I happen to love peanut butter anything. I’m a teensy obsessed. An idea came to me recently so this is the first stage of that idea…the peanut butter cookie. A good old fashioned peanut butter cookie. And then to take them up a notch, why not add jam or Nutella? Oh yea!
– – – –I’m not sure cookies get any better really. They’re rich, flavourful and a family favourite! Delish!
Make all 3 variations with 1 batch of dough!
The great thing about this recipe is that the batch is so big, you can make all 3 variations with the same cookie dough! I have to tell you though, the PB&J version is the BEST. Truly delicious!!
Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
Just as it sounds, a classic peanut butter cookie. Crunchy. Buttery. Peanut Buttery.
Peanut Butter and Jam Thumbprints
Take your PB cookie up a notch and turn it into a jam thumbprint. A centre filled with raspberry jam is super delicious!
Peanut Butter and Nutella Thumbprints
If you love peanut butter and chocolate together then you will love these PB Nutella thumbprint cookies!
- Optional Addition: If you like, you can add chocolate chips too! About 1-2 cups, depending on how chocolatey you like them!
- Freezing: This recipe makes about 6 dozen cookies, so they are perfect for freezing in batches. Store them in an airtight ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 6 months. NOTE: If you are freezing the jam or Nutella cookies, I would lay them out on a cookie sheet and put them into the freezer to freeze like this. Then once they are frozen, transfer them to ziplock bags…this way you won’t have jam or Nutella all over the place.
