2nd Blogiversary: Baby Bakes Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies!

August 10, 2009

Baby O and I proudly present Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies!  These cookies are to die for!  So incredibly undeniably delicious your eyeballs will roll into the back of your head.  For real.

For the cookie we used Baby O’s Chocolate Truffle Cookies (amazing all on their own) and for the peanut butter “filling” (aka frosting) we used Ina Garten’s recipe (doubled) with just one tweak.

Baby O’s Chocolate Truffle Cookies

  • 1 C unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 3/4 C light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C organic f-t cocoa
  • 2 1/2 C chopped chocolate or chocolate chips (about 16 oz)
    *don’t be shy with the chocolate and go for something dark!
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and mix well.  Add vanilla.
  4. Stir cocoa, flour, salt, and baking soda together using a whisk to get any clumps out.  You could probably also sift the flour and cocoa together if you felt so inclined.  I’ll probably always stick with the whisk.
  5. Add dry mixture to butter mixture.  I do this about 1/2 C at a time incorporating as I go.
  6. Stir in chopped chocolate or chips.
  7. Drop by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet and bake for about 14 minutes.  Let cool a minute or two on pan, otherwise they might smoosh up when you try to move them.  Then finish cooling on wire rack.

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  1. Place the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or use a hand-held mixer). Mix on medium-low speed until creamy.  Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you work.
  2. Add the cream and beat on high until the mixture is light and smooth.
