Peanut Butter and Jam Pinwheel Cookies - Home Sweet Home Bake Along (44/100)

Despite conceding that these are rather good when dunked in hot chocolate, and acknowledging that they were all consumed when presented at work, I am somewhat underwhelmed by these cookies.

The peanut flavour was lacking and only the cloying taste came across, rather than a good punch of peanut, and the jam was so thin as to be barely there.

I am a fan of the pinwheel concept, and wonder if this could be adapted to make a vanilla cookie with a speculoos swirl, or even a chocolate cookie with a hazelnut spread swirl?

60g smooth raspberry jam (I used strawberry, because that is what i had in the cupboard)
1 tsp cornflour
100g unsalted butter, softened
100g smooth peanut butter
180g caster sugar
1 large egg
2 tbsp whole milk
340g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp of salt

Next up: Chess Pie

Thank you! They were a bit "okay" - I love peanut butter and jam, but probably wouldn't make these cookies again.
