pb&j thumbprint cookies | my skinny sweet tooth

These little babies are the perfect 2 bites (or pop ’em in whole) of the classic peanut butter and jelly … in cookie form! Then, we fancy it up with the “thumbprint” detail and fill that crater with jam. Oh la la.

This recipe uses PB2 (powdered peanut butter, which you’ve probably notice I use a lot in my recipes) and has no eggs or oil. Awesome! The cookies came out nice and soft, almost like a no-bake consistency (which I prefer most of the time).

mini chocolate peanut butter pies

mini chocolate peanut butter pies | my skinny sweet tooth

Today is my best friends birthday and one thing comes to mind when I think of her: Chocolate & peanut butter.  This girl loooves her Reese cups. So, it’s only fair that I make something delicious for her big day (even though she’s 2 hours away and I’m the only one that’s going to enjoy them. Sorry, Judd 😉 Happy Birthday anyway xoxo)

Great timing as well because I’ve also been wanting to play around with a butter-less graham cracker crust. Found a few online and did some tweaking here and there … and tada! I’m satisfied with the results; satisfied enough that I’m ready to make it on a bigger scale. Keep an eye out pie lovers. Good things are happening here … 🙂
