Mini Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buttercream Cookie Sandwiches

Dear Friends,

Below is a terrific recipe I think everyone should try. Enjoy!


Mini Peanut Butter and Chocolate Buttercream Cookie Sandwiches


1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose Gold Medal Flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Chocolate Buttercream
1 stick (8 tablespoons) softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
2. Place butter and sugars into your stand mixer beating until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, peanut butter, then vanilla to the mixer, beating until creamy.
3. In a large bowl, mix your flour, salt and baking soda to combine then add to the wet ingredients until just combined. With a small cookie scoop, scoop dough onto your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool.
4. To prepare buttercream, place butter and 1 cup powdered sugar into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Place chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. Stir and add to bowl, whisking. Add remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar to bowl, whisking until a nice frosting consistency is reached. Add buttercream to cooled peanut butter cookies sandwiching together. Serve and enjoy!
Makes 12-18 cookie sandwiches
