Description

These Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches are so simple, yet so delicious! And you get to eat two cookies at once…Yippee!


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar plus more for flattening
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 11/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup melted chocolate, chocolate-hazelnut spread, peanut butter, or jelly (for filling)

Instructions

  1. Blend sugars, peanut butter, butter and egg in an electric mixer. Stir in remaining ingredients until well incorporated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate about 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 375°F.
  3. Shape dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in a crisscross pattern with a fork that has been dipped in sugar.
  4. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown, rotating cookie sheet after 5 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. When cookies are cool, flip over and spread half of the cookie bottoms with about a tablespoon of your preferred filling. Top with a similar size cookie.
