These are better than they have any right to be. They're just slightly more complex than a basic PB&J, and the streaks of fig are unreal. Also, strongly recommend eating them straight out of the freezer for maximum chew perfection.
WHAT YOU NEED:
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup fig jam or preserves
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave safe dish, melt together the butter and peanut butter in 30 second bursts, stirring between each one. Set aside to cool.
- In a large bowl, whisk together cooled peanut butter mixture and both sugars until smooth. Add in egg, yolk and vanilla and stir until combined.
- Sprinkle flour, baking soda and salt over wet ingredients (or whisk the dry ingredients in a bowl first if you're a perfectionist), and gently fold them in using a spoon or spatula. When no flour streaks remain, fold in fig jam. Let dough chill in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Roll chilled dough into 1-inch balls and place a few inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are just beginning to brown. Let rest on baking sheets for a few minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
