These taste very good, but I had the same problem with the 'crumbliness' of the end product. I only used the yolk, so maybe the whole egg is the answer.Also, I found that 1/2 tsp of jam filled the cookie.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat in the peanut butter, egg yolk and vanilla.
  4. Stir in the flour and salt.
  5. Form the dough into 1-inch balls.
  6. Roll them in peanuts and place about 2 inches apart on a large cookie sheet.
  7. Bake the cookies for 5 minutes.
  8. Using a small melon baller or your thumb (but be careful not to burn yourself), make a deep indentation in the center of each cookie so that it will flatten slightly.
  9. With the melon baller, spoon about 1 teaspoon of the preserves into each cookie.
  11. Bake for about 15 minutes longer, until the cookies are golden and cracked.
  12. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
