The best peanut butter cookie recipe I have run across is a crunchy, crumbly cookie from Linda Weber, which I found in a Fine Cooking magazine, April/May 2001.  I filled the cookies with some raspberry Jam, and the result was extraordinary!

You could, of course, add any jam or chocolate, or cream filling you wanted with delicious results.  Nutella would be a classic filling.  I think I’ll try them next with a blueberry jam.

Try these with your favorite filling.  You can’t possibly go wrong!
