I keep calling it that. I know it’s an Instant…
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
Preheat oven to 375Â°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.
