Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Sandwich Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup softened unsalted butter
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 medium sized eggs
- 2 ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- 8 ounces of dark chocolate bits or a bar
- Preheat your oven to 375
- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
- In an electric mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars. When smooth, add in the eggs and mix thoroughly again. Slowly start to add in the flour mixture, use a low-medium setting. When fully combined wrap the batter in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
- While that is chilling you can start to chop of the chocolate so it will be ready later once the cookies have baked and cooled.
- When the cookie mixture has chilled, roll balls that are about 1.5 inches (you can go larger or smaller-just keep in mind that will affect the total amount of cookies you have and baking times). Using long tonged forks press down on each ball in one directions, and then in the other creating cross marks. Bake about 10 minutes or until the cookies start to brown.
- When the cookies are done and fully chilled start to melt your chocolate according to the package directions (microwave is fine). You’ll want to keep the chocolate slightly cooler so it has a thicker consistency. This will help it stay thick when you pour it onto your cookie, giving you a nice thick chocolate layer (instead of it running down the sides). Place about two big spoonful’s onto the bottom of half your cookies and then add the tops (do a few at a time to make sure the chocolate starts to set up with the sandwich together. Let the chocolate harden for a few hours before serving.
Just look at that chocolate filling…make sure you have a tall glass of milk handy 🙂
