30-Minute Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookie

There is no more iconic pairing than peanut butter and jelly. Marrying them in a sandwich cookie is an obvious opportunity and so easy to make! A simple, flour-free peanut butter cookie recipe is delicious on its own but irresistible with a bit of grape jelly in between! Any jelly of your preference can be used. Finished sandwich cookies can be stored sealed in the refrigerator or frozen in a sturdy container, placed in single layers separated with wax paper.

  • 1 cup smooth Peanut Butter; natural , peanuts only (no sugar or salt)
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg , lightly beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ cup – ¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons of Grape Jelly (or preferred flavor fruit jelly, not jam)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper.
  2. Using a mixer, combine the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla, egg and salt. Mix at medium speed until it is fully combined.
  3. Scoop in tablespoon portions (a cookie scoop works great for this), forming a ball and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten and mark with fork tines in a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 10 minutes. Remove them onto a cooling rack to fully cool before making the sandwiches.
  5. Place 1 to 1 ½ teaspoon of jelly on the bottom (flat) side of one cookie and spread it evenly. Place the flat side of a second cookie on the jelly. Note: adding 1 ½ teaspoon of jelly will give a thicker layer that may squeeze out a bit when eating it; that was a preference of some of my taste testers!
