A chewy gluten and dairy free peanut butter cookie with a thumbprint of jam on top.

The classic peanut butter and jam combination in a bite-sized gluten and dairy-free parcel, inspired by Gordon Ramsey #peanutbutterandjam

For those who haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE peanut butter.  And I’m slowly getting used to the idea of coupling peanut butter with other condiments, such as honey and jam.  Have you ever tried the combination of peanut butter and honey?  Or peanut butter and maple syrup?  You have to – trust me.  Try the combination in granola, or as a healthy fudge swirl in ice cream, or just as frosting … I dare you to not lick the spoon for any of these!

But here’s the classic combination of peanut butter and jam.  Or jelly for all you US people!  

This recipe comes to you from Gordon Ramsay’s cookbook again and it is delicious … don’t just trust me though, you have to try it for yourselves!  Yes I adapted it a little (see all the comments below where people mentioned I didn’t follow the recipe), but ultimately it was inspired by the great man himself.  The next time I make these, I may try just with some honey.  Or a combination of different jams.  Or actually do what the original recipe stated and put some peanut butter on top as well.  Hmmm, I think I’m making myself hungry already!
