“These cookies are great for kids of all ages. I usually double the recipe when I make them. Using a cookie scoop and soda bottle cap to make the indentations results in uniform cookies, which makes a nice presentation. But you can improvise with other lids; just aim for something about the size of a quarter. Use any variety of jelly, but I do not recommend jelly with chunks of fruit, like strawberry. Attempting to move the cookies prior to cooling completely will cause them to break.” - by Grace Gutberlet
Original recipe yields 30 cookies
- 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.

"My sons love thumbprint cookies and peanut butter so I decided to try this recipe. The dough is very dry and crumbly, chilling made it worse. I added more peanut butter by hand until the dough came to..." See moregether properly. Next time I would use 1 cup of peanut butter and add another egg. I used my 1 tbsp scoop and got 51 cookies that baked in 16 minutes on Silpat lined sheets. I used homemade strawberry jam as that is what we like."
