Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies Recipe

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies Recipes


Original recipe makes 5 dozen

  •  1 cup peanut butter
  •  1 cup butter flavored shortening
  •  1 cup white sugar
  •  1 cup packed brown sugar
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  3 eggs
  •  3 cups all-purpose flour
  •  2 teaspoons baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  •  3 cups confectioners' sugar
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  5 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, 1 cup creamy peanut butter and white and brown sugars. Add vanilla and then eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add slowly to creamy mixture.
  3. Shape into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten balls with a fork.
  4. Bake for 7-8 minutes depending on size (I tend to keep a close eye on them and remove them as soon as they start to get golden. This helps to make them chewy.) Cool on wire racks.
  5. To Make the filling: Combine 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl adding enough milk to make for a creamy, frosting like texture. Spread frosting on one cookie and top off to make "sandwich".
