Units Scale
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 and 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup honey nut granola, big clumps broken up
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam, or other red jam of your choice


  1. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the peanut butter and butter.
  2. Stir in the powdered sugar and granola to form a soft dough.
  3. Roll the dough into 24 balls and place in a single layer on a parchment-lined tray. Press your thumb or the back of a greased spoon into each ball to create a small indentation in each cookie and fill each indentation with jam.
  4. Chill 1 hour, or until firm. Store in the refrigerator.
