Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325ºF and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

Step 3

In the bowl of stand mixer, cream together the butter and chunky and smooth peanut butters. Add the brown and granulated sugars and beat for 3 minutes. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Step 4

Put some granulated sugar in a bowl. Scoop 1/4-cup balls of dough into the bowl, roll the dough in the sugar and transfer to the prepared baking sheets, pressing each cookie flat with a fork. Bake until the edges are golden brown, 8 to 11 minutes. Let cool completely before filling with frosting.

Step 5

Cream together the cream cheese, butter, jam and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add the powdered sugar and beat until soft and creamy.

Step 6

Spread approximately 2 tablespoons of frosting on one side of a cookie and sandwich together with another cookie. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
