PB Bliss


I came across this recipe from Eat Cake For Dinner - she has tons of yummy food ideas!

My Man's bday was a few days ago and I decided to make these for his bday instead of a cake. 

A little history...When we were dating he told me that growing up he wanted peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies but his mom never made them. Of course the next time we saw eachother I had a plateful of them. He says that was what won him over with me.  (ya right and I hope not-although they do say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach!) 

Lets just say that he ♥s these cookies!

Cookie Ingredients

3/4 C flour
1/2 t soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C PB
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 C quick cooking oats
(I added chocolate chips too)
Filling Ingredients

3 T butter, softened
1C confectioners' sugar
1/2 C smooth PB
2 1/2 T heavy whipping cream
In a large bowl, cream together:
 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup peanut butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add egg and beat well.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir. Add oatmeal and stir.
Drop by teaspoons onto greased baking sheet, and press each mound down with a fork to form 1/4 inch thick cookies. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or until cookies are a light brown.
To Make Filling: Cream 3 tablespoons butter or margarine with the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, and the cream. Spread filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches.
Hide some so you actually get to eat a couple. Just a couple, so you don't eat the whole batch. Trust me, you'll want to!
Make sure to have a napkin ready to catch all the drool. ;)

  10. Are these crunchy or chewy? Also, how many sandwiches does the recipe make?

    ReplyDelete
  11. They are chewy. A batch makes 24 small/medium cookies. They're very rich so you can't eat too many. (Which is a good thing for this sweet tooth.) ;) Thanks for stopping by!
