Homemade Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

5 years ago

My boyfriend loves peanut butter and oatmeal cookies, so I decided to make him some peanut butter and oatmeal sandwich cookies. :) I got the recipe from a food blog called http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com. Here is the recipe, from their http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/peanut-butter-oatmeal-sandwich-cookies/: Yield: 18 sandwich cookies Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10-12 minutes Soft and chewy peanut butter cookies with a creamy peanut butter filling. Ingredients: 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup quick-cooking oats For the Filling 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted 3 tablespoons heavy cream Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat and set aside. 2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, peanut butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until combined. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Finally, add the oats and mix until just combined. 3. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a cookie ball. Place on prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between the cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly golden and the edges are set. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. 4. While the cookies are cooling, make the filling. Combine the butter, peanut butter and powdered sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until smooth. Add the heavy cream and beat until light and fluffy. Using a knife, spread peanut butter filling onto the flat side of a cookie. Find a cookie the same size and sandwich the cookies together, pressing the filling to the edges. I think the cookies I made were WAY larger than they should have been...I ended up with 9 cookie sandwiches instead of 18...lol! Either way, my boyfriend really likes them. :) I won`t be having a whole one to myself (as they are huge and I`m trying to cut down on empty calories), but I did try a bite and they are really sweet. Surprisingly, they are not too peanut-buttery. In my opinion, the more peanut-buttery, the better, so these cookies aren`t up my alley all that much. I`m not sure if I`ll make them again, unless my boyfriend asks specifically for them, lol. XD
