Peanut-Butter-Oat Drop Cookies with Jam


  • 4 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (we use Diamond Crystal)
  • 1 large egg yolk, room-temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 recipe Frozen-Berry Jam


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine butter, brown sugar, peanut butter, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla, then add flour and mix until just combined. Scoop dough into 1-inch balls and roll in oats to coat; place cookies on parchment-lined baking sheets, spaced 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until puffed and just set around edges, 10 to 12 minutes. While cookies are still warm, indent centers with the end of a wooden spoon; fill each with 1/2 teaspoon jam. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely before serving.

Once baked and filled, these can be stored in—and enjoyed straight from—the freezer for up to a month.
