  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 8 tbsp Unsalted butter at room temperature Cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup Creamy peanut butter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment
  • In medium bowl, sift or whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt
  • In another bowl or mixer, beat butter, peanut butter, 3/4 cup of granulated sugar and all light brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix until blended. Gradually add flour and mix until just incorporated. Don't continue to mix once you can't see flour.
  • In a small bowl place the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. Form dough into 1/4 cup balls and roll in the sugar. Should make about 10 balls. Only place 5 balls on a baking sheet and make sure they have space between them.
  • Use a 1/4 tsp to make an indentation in center of each ball (1/2 to 3/4 inch deep). Spoon a tsp of jam into each indentation
  • Bake cookies for 11-14 minutes until cookies are crackled and dough has spread. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring to rack and then cool completely for 20 minutes before eating.
