  • 6 oz creamy peanut butter plus more to pipe on top of the cookies
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 5 oz all-purpose flour (or GF flour for a GF version)
  • 8 teaspoons sugar-free strawberry jelly or other flavor of your choice


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients until obtaining a homogeneous mixture. Using a cookie scooper or a tablespoon as measurement, roll dough into balls, place onto the lined baking sheet, and make a hole in the center using the stick of a wooden spoon. Don't poke the hole all the way through-- just more or less halfway deep.
  • Fill each hole with about ½ teaspoon of jelly. Bake for about 7-10 minutes or just until cookies set.
  • Transfer baking sheet to a rack and let cookies cool. Then, pipe a bit of peanut butter on top of each cookie. If you are not on a sugar-free diet, you can sprinkle a bit of sugar sprinkles on top of the piped peanut butter if desired. Enjoy these peanut butter and jelly cookies with your favorite beverage.

Recipe Notes

1. Variations: Use Nutella, cookie butter, or another nut butter instead of peanut butter. If using Nutella, fill the hole with it once cookies bake and have cooled.
2. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add about ⅓ cup sugar or a baking sugar substitute to the dough.
