Recipe 56: Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

Someone at work read my blog and was appalled that I didn’t have a peanut butter section. I’ve made a couple cookies with PB, and in that spirit, I went for these next.

These are in the “Kids Cookies” section, so they’re a piece of cake, right? 

Step 1: Gather ingredients: Flour egg, brown sugar, butter, salt, baking soda, peanut butter.

Looks pretty basic and easy. I’m feeling good and confident.

Step 2: Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

Crap. This is what happens when I start to feel confident. I take blurry pictures because I’m moving too quickly. Slowing down now…

Step 3: Beat butter, sugar, and peanut butter.

Step 4: Add egg.

Step 5: Add flour mixture.

Step 6: Wrap into 8-inch rectangular logs. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

If you were wondering, I still hate logs. I dread cutting/accidentally smashing them.

I went to Target, which took a little longer than an hour. When I returned…

Step 7: Cut into 1/4-inch slices.

It kinda looks like I’m slicing bread! Nice!

Step 8: While baking, gather ingredients for filling: Powdered sugar, butter, peanut butter, cream.

At this point, I’ve almost cleaned out the peanut butter jar. You better be happy.

Step 9: Mix it up.

Creamy.

Step 10: Spread filling on bread cookie and top with another.

Link to original recipe (couldn’t find at Martha’s site.)

Start time: 7:55
End time: 11:15 (3 hours, 20 mins)
Martha’s estimated time: 2 hours, 10 mins

What did I learn? 

  • Eating peanut butter along the way makes you not want to eat the cookies. I didn’t have one.

What do I need to learn? 

  • How do you make a perfect log? Mine had air pockets. Should I have smashed the dough down first?

These were popular at work. I might make them again.

Next time, should I add jelly?
