Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups peaches peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch dices
  • ½ cup peach jam or preserves
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Next, in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • Moreover, beat butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  • Also, reduce speed to low. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Then add flour mixture, and beat until just combined.
  • Similarly, add peaches and jam, and beat until just combined.
  • Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets spacing about 2 inches apart. (If not baking all of the cookies at once, refrigerate the dough between batches; dough can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days.)
  • Combine confectioners sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle each cookie with 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown and just set, 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Finally, let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, and then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

These cookies are best enjoyed the day they're baked. They tend to soften at the edges after a couple of days, but they'll still taste delicious.
