I remember the first time I had a peanut butter cookie with raspberry jam. I was in a cafe in my hometown and really just wanted something sweet that was gluten-free and this was the only option. Hmm, how interesting, I thought. I’d never seen a peanut butter cookie with jam in it. What an inventive flavor combo, I thought. I took me a good five minutes to realize, peanut butter with raspberry jam, well….that’s…not unlike a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Duh.
Anyhoo, this is my attempt at recreating that cookie, and they are quite good. Even better when frozen! (Also, do you like my vintage serving plate with the funny little handle? I bought them months ago and finally had the chance to use one. I think they’re sort of adorable.)
