Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
« on: October 16, 2013, 11:42:18 AM »
Makes 24 cookies.

Ingredients
Cookies
1 1/4 cups (6 1/4 ounces) raw peanuts, toasted and cooled
3/4 cup (3 3/4 ounces) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed (3 1/2 ounces) light brown sugar
3 tablespoons whole milk
1 large egg

Filling
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup (4 ounces) confectioners' sugar

Instructions
1. Cookies: Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Pulse peanuts in food processor until finely chopped, about 8 pulses. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in bowl. Whisk butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, milk, and egg together in second bowl. Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture with rubber spatula until combined. Stir in peanuts until evenly distributed.
2. Using #60 scoop or tablespoon measure, place 12 mounds, evenly spaced, on each prepared baking sheet. Using damp hand, flatten mounds until 2 inches in diameter.
3. Bake until deep golden brown and firm to touch, 15 to 18 minutes, switching and rotating sheets halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool completely, about 30 minutes. Repeat portioning and baking remaining dough.
4. Filling: Microwave peanut butter and butter until butter is melted and warm, about 40 seconds. Using rubber spatula, stir in confectionersí sugar until combined.
5. Place 24 cookies upside down on work surface. Place 1 level tablespoon warm filling in center of each cookie. Place second cookie on top of filling, right side up, pressing gently until filling spreads to edges. Allow filling to set for 1 hour before serving.

Those sound really, really good.

The only thing missing ;) is dipping the sandwich cookie in some melted chocolate for a Reese's spin. ;D



The only reason I say that is because one of my favorite and easiest cookies I made with the DDs when they were much younger is a sandwich of 2 Ritz crackers with peanut butter spread in the middle, coated in melted chocolate. So easy for little kids and delicious, too!

sub out the peanut butter filling for some jam and you have yourself a PB&J cookie

Even better, jam can be cooked with the cookie and so when you pull it out of the oven, they are ready to go

I love peanut butter sandwich cookies! The recipe I use is a little different. It had oatmeal.
