GETTING READY

1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F or 190 degree C.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

MAKING

3. In a bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

4. In a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle, beat the butter, peanut butter, ¾ cup of sugar, and brown sugar together, until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.

5. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until fully blended.

6. With the mixer running on low speed, gradually add the flour and cocoa mixture and beat until fully blended.

7. Form the dough into ¼ cup-size balls and roll in the sugar. Arrange 5 balls of dough, evenly apart, on each baking sheet.

8. Using the handle end of a wooden spoon, make a hole in the centre of each ball, about ½" to ¾" deep. Fill each hole with jam.

9. Bake for 11-14 minutes or until the dough has spread and the surface of the cookies are crackled. Cool slightly and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

SERVING

10. Serve and enjoy!
