Peanut Butter
Cookie Sandwiches

I have to admit these were not my idea. Teresa from “Can’t stay out of the Kitchen” posted these and I have been wanting to make them forever. These are a complete delight and would be great as a dessert or special treat for friends. They are very rich, I promise 1 cookie sandwich will satisfy even the biggest cookie lover.

I combined my own peanut butter cookie recipe with Teresa’s peanut butter icing filling.

Ingredients:   yields about 2 dozen cookies, which will made 1 dozen cookie sandwiches

  • 1/4 cup shortening at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup salted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup salted peanuts, chopped

Preheat your oven to 375 and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, using an electric beater, cream together the shortening, butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar and egg. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. I generally sift all of these ingredients over the large bowl of creamed ingredients. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula stir the dry ingredients and peanuts into the creamed ingredients until thoroughly blended.

Roll a large tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball and place 2″ inches apart on a cookie sheet. Flatten the dough balls slightly by making a crisscross over them with a fork dipped in sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Now for the good stuff, the peanut butter frosting/filing. Recipe courtesy of  Teresa at “Can’t Stay out of Kitchen”

  • 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp  vanilla
  • 5-9 TB milk

In a large bowl beat the peanut butter, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and enough milk to make the icing spreadable. I ended up using only 5 TB of milk, so start out with a couple and add more a little at a time until you get the consistency you want. Spread the icing over one cooked and top with another. Easy, simple and oh so delightful.

      LOL, you’re funny. I bet you thought you had a stalker. I’ve been toying with the idea of making items gluten free for Mark and I. So if you tweak a recipe of mine please share the changes….if you don’t mind. I would love to try the recipes gluten free.
