Peanut Butter Bliss

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


  • 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.

  1. These look so, so sweet! Peanut butter cookies are my favorite so this recipe is going to be difficult to pass up.

  2. Those…look….GREAT!!

  3. 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?

  4. 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!

  5. Ay, Chihuahua! Conoces que Chad van a ensalivar! Ahora tengo que lo hacer…..Creo que no haces dulces!
