Peanut Butter Bliss

August 28, 2005

I decided to try a new cookie recipe today at the bed and breakfast. I found this recipe at the Bed & Breakfast Inns Online website, and it didn’t disappoint. The cookies are dense and soft, and the filling complements them perfectly. They’re such a treat…it’s not often I take the time to make a cookie that requires assembly. But today was such a perfect Sunday, a perfect sandwich cookie day.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Add to mixture in mixing bowl.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten with tines of a fork. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes (do not overbake!). Remove from oven and leave on cookie sheet for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the cookies to continue absorbing the heat from the cookie sheet. They should be slightly brown on the bottom. Cool on wire racks.

In a mixing bowl combine and mix the filling ingredients until smooth. Spread on half of the cookies and top each with another cookie.

Makes 5 dozen.

    These are so darn cute. Too bad I’m too lazy to do the assembly ;)

    BTW, your photographs always come out so nicely, and I’m in the market for a digital camera. What type do you use?

    Well, at the moment we use an old Olympus C-2100…it was a really good semi-professional camera back in its day. But we are also looking into a new one. I’ll ask my husband which one he liked best and relay the info to you!
