Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

These cookies are wickedd! They are such a tease to the palate, being sweet and salty at the same time. While i am very much in love with the cookies with the slight peanut butter taste and packed with oats, i am absolutely swooning over the filling.

I think this filling is a genius. Like all american buttercream, this filling is mainly butter (or peanut butter in this case) and icing sugar. However,  it has an additional quick  pour of heavy cream which really kicked it up a notch. The heavy cream really increased air binding ability in the buttercream, making it most ethereal and silky smooth.

While assembling these cookies, all i wanted to do was just dip my cookie into the cream, and pop into into my mouth. It took me LOTS of willpower to stop at what i was doing and actually made actual sandwich cookies out of these. Also, the thing with sandwich cookies is that u think u have lots of cookies going on for you, but really, after pairing them with their partners, you are left with only half of what you think you have.

After all that cookie dipping while assembling, i was left with scarcely less than a dozen cookies. That’s hardly enough to go around at my workplace. I packed each one of them while fending every evil temptation to have yet another cookie.

So while i was pretty upset at having so little cookies to show for, at least i was glad of a very delicious breakfast.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Taken from Buns in My Oven

yield about 16 sandwiches

For the cookies:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats

For the filling:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp whipping cream

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Begin by creaming the butter and sugars for the cookies. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a small bowl mix together your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix into the creamed butter and sugars. Mix in the oats and stir until combined. Drop teaspoonfuls (or use a small cookie scoop) of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Make a criss cross with a fork to flatten the cookies. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.

To make the filling, beat all ingredients together until well mixed and smooth. Spread the filling on the bottom of one cookie and top with another to form a sandwich. Repeat with all the cookies.

    Oh, these look dangerous! I would have eaten the whole batch before any of them were made into sandwiches if it were me. I think you have great restraint to not just dip all the cookies into the buttercream!

    I think I’d have trouble resisting the urge to just eat that filling as it is, although the finished sandwich cookie certainly looks worth the sacrifice. Sounds like another super recipe.

    You make nice cookies … these certainly look great. Are they chewy or crispy type?

    wow, the filling sounds amazing, i can almost imagine what;s the taste like, yummy! those cookies are very pretty!can i ask, thinking of our hot weather here does this filling get melt or soft if we just leave it in room temperature?

    You made the cookies sound and look soo good. If I were to make them, the only reason I would be able to resist them is because I don’t like peanut butter. 🙂 You took peanut butter sandwiches to a whole new level. 😉
