  • 10 heaped tsp raspberry jam


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4 and line two baking sheets with parchment. Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars together until very light and fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla. Once combined, stir in the flour, chopped peanuts, bicarb and ¼ tsp salt.

  2. Scoop 10 large tbsps of the mixture onto the trays, leaving enough space between each to allow for spreading. Make a thumbprint in the centre of the cookies and fill each with 1 heaped tsp raspberry jam (you could make your own jam for this). Bake for 10-12 mins or until firm at the edges but still soft in the middle – they will harden a little as they cool. Leave to cool on the tray for a few mins before eating warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Will keep for three days in an airtight container.
