Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies are soft peanut butter cookies made from scratch then filled with homemade peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough.
The first week in November. Seriously? Already? Where’s my September, my October? I feel like I didn’t do enough fall things. I want to take a walk in the woods where golden leaves are everywhere. I want to be slightly bundled up in a sweater walking outside in the brisk weather drinking a hot pumpkin spice latte (no ugg boots though – I don’t wear those). I want to embrace the unusually warm fall weather because once fall is over, that means the dreaded four letter S word. Snow. Nope not talking about that today. Instead let’s talk about COOKIES! Last year you may remember Cookie Week with Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen and Kim of Cravings Of A Lunatic. (If not, a group of bloggers are each sharing three cookie recipes this week – see the list at the end of the post). This year we are back with even more cookies to get you through the holidays. And of course we can’t have Cookie Week without a giveaway! Keep reading for more info on the sponsors and prizes.
Last year I kicked it off with peanut butter cup sandwich cookies, so it’s only fitting that I kick this year off with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies, which are even better. I’m not kidding. Usually I can eat one cookie and give the rest away, but nope I ate a couple then gave the rest away. That’s a big deal for someone who constantly has something sweet in her apartment. If you like peanut butter and cookie dough, you’re going to love them together as a sandwich cookie.
Two words – cookie dough. I don’t think there’s one person who hasn’t snuck a taste of cookie dough when baking cookies, regardless of what Mom said about eating raw eggs. And I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard on the news “Person dies from eating raw cookie dough.” Nevertheless, this cookie dough is egg free. Just make sure you leave some for the actual cookies.
Speaking of cookies, they looked practically perfect after pulling them from the oven. The tops were round and crinkly. They are chewy and soft, but not too soft as you need them firm enough to sandwich together. Every cookie had a matching pair, including size too. Do you realize how rare that is? Usually at the end, you have one cookie slightly bigger than the other.
I’m not going to lie – peanut butter cookie dough sandwich cookies do not mail well BUT they do package well if you’re giving them away in person. Two Sundays ago, Kayle from The Cooking Actress visited me in Pittsburgh for the day, so I sent her home with a cute Halloween treat box filled with these and another cookie I made (which I’m posting tomorrow). So if you don’t know what to get someone for Christmas, I’m sure a box of these cookies will beat an ugly Christmas sweater any day.
