Double peanut butter sandwich cookies. Two soft, chewy, peanut butter cookies sandwiching a sweet peanut butter cream. What more could you ask for?

You guys, I haven’t updated this blog in forever. But I have a good excuse! Tax season + Jewish holidays + a last minute overseas flight + breaking my foot a few hours before aforesaid last minute overseas flight. That makes for more than one good excuse, actually.

But now we’re back to normal.

(Well, not really. We’re never normal around here. I should have said back on schedule.)

Tax season is over (phew), holidays are done, we’re back at home, and my foot is in this gigantic annoying boot cast thing. Yay.

So I haven’t updated in awhile, and my past few posts were sadly not peanut butter dessert recipes. And I am going through serious peanut butter withdrawal. My palms are all sweaty, and my head is spinning, and I’m shaking all over, and (gimme a sec while I Google some more withdrawal symptoms, will you?)

Anyway. Peanut butter dessert withdrawal. It’s totally a real thing, ok? And by totally a real thing, I mean I most definitely did not make it up within the past five minutes.

To save all my dear readers from this dread disease, I will selflessly post this recipe for double peanut butter sandwich cookies. Aren’t I just the nicest person ever?

Here goes:

INGREDIENTS

For the peanut butter cookies:
1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick oats

For the peanut butter cream filling:
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup smooth peanut butter
Milk or milk substitute, as needed

DIRECTIONS

Preheat an oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix butter, both sugars, egg, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make sure to mix the baking powder, soda, and salt into the flour before mixing the flour into the rest of the batter. Add oats and mix to combine.

Place rounded teaspoonfuls of batter on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (Use the teaspoon and don’t just guesstimate like I usually do. It will make these cute mini cookies.) Using your finger, pat dough down so they form small flattened circles. Bake for 8 minutes.

While the cookies are baking, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar and peanut butter. Add milk or milk substitute as necessary until a spreadable glaze consistency is formed.

To fill the cookies:  Dollop a spoonful of filling onto the flat bottom of a cookie. Place a second cookie on top of filling and press together until filling just comes to the edges.

Double Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies Verdict

You may have noticed (and if not, you can pretend you did to make me feel better) that I changed things up a bit. Instead of copying the original recipe as written and then listing what I changed in a separate section after, I just incorporated my changes into the recipe itself. Do you like that better or worse? Leave a comment and let me know!

But back to double peanut butter sandwich cookies.

These cookies are delicious. I made them twice, once with the filling and once without. Even without the filling, they are perfectly soft and chewy and peanut buttery and sweet. Adding the filling just kick it up a notch to a level of peanut buttery perfection you would not have believed possible. Seriously. These are that good. And they are so cute and tiny, you don’t feel guilty about eating ten cookies at once, so that’s a plus.
