4-Ingredient, Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprint Cookies (GF)

These 4-Ingredient, Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprint Cookies may just be the quickest, easiest, and sweetest cookies to make! They’re naturally gluten-free as well. These cookies are great for kids just learning to cook, because they can do most of the steps all by themselves! And that little thumbprint, it gets me every time…



  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • strawberry jam


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the peanut butter, sugar and egg together.

Roll the dough into little balls and place onto your cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. (We always use parchment paper underneath too!)

Next, have your little one push their thumb into the middle of each cookie.

Using a measuring spoon, drop about 1/2 tsp of strawberry jelly into each thumbprint.

Bake in the oven for 7-10 min. Watch your cookies carefully…you want them to be fully cooked, but not too brown or burnt underneath. After a few minutes out of the oven, move the cookies to a rack and let them cool completely. Enjoy!!!
