Death By Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

Or as Brian calls them, “Peanut Butter OD’s.”


I’m SO over death by chocolate. I mean, it’s good and all, but if I’m going to die a food related death, I would rather die in the ooey, gooey, creamy/crunchy salty flavors of peanut butter. Yes please, that sounds divine.

And I know there are dozens of you out there who would agree.


I was thinking the other day about the abundance of Death By Chocolate desserts, and I started wondering… why is there death by chocolate EVERYTHING, but any peanut butter dessert has to be paired with other things? Why can’t peanut butter stand alone as the shining star it is? So I set out to find a Gafas Ray Ban outlet combination of recipes that would do that.

I decided on cookie sandwiches  A simple enough recipe to combine multiple peanut butter goodies.  For the cookies, I halved the Soft Baked Cookie recipe I posted a few weeks ago. I also added an extra egg yolk and some corn starch to make the cookies softer and chewier.


I then stuffed the cookies with a homemade peanut butter buttercream, and rolled them in peanut butter chips. Pure bliss.

    Sometimes Death by Chocolate can be a little much. Don’t get me wrong I am all about chocolate, but sometimes change is good 🙂 These little cookies look fabulous! My hubby would love them. I pinned this to my cookie board. Thanks so much for linking up with me 🙂 Krista @ A Handful of Everything

    This is a food death I could handle too. Last month all I wanted to eat was maple syrup but this month everything is peanut butter – thanks for helping me with a craving! These look great!

      Thank you so much, Averie! They are the softest and chewiest peanut butter cookies, and that was thanks to the cornstarch trick I learned from you!
