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 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 10: Spread filling on
bread cookie and top with another.
Voila! Now you have a peanut butter sandwich!

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?
Great post! I’ll definitely be back! I love peanut butter cookies, and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes. I’m sure these will be popular with my co-workers as well.
Thanks for the recipe, it seems yummy!!
