Homemade Nutter Butter Cookies- these cookies are like whoopie pies with all things peanut butter. They melt in your mouth and you’ll have a hard time eating just one.
If you’re anything like me, you’re always trying to tackle more than one thing at a time.. multi-tasking to the extreme. I can often be found baking and spending time in the kitchen while I listen to music. I have been into podcasts lately too. But it occurred to me that I could easily listen to some of my books on Audible while I cook and bake. I’m not sure why it didn’t occur to me before!
I have an Audible app on my phone and an iPad so I can listen wherever I am – in the kitchen, in the car, wherever! You better believe I’ll be tackling my book list more. I turned on the Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley while I whipped up these homemade nutter butter cookies.
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 TBSP vanilla
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup all- purpose flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 3 Tbsp butter, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 ½ Tbsp heavy whipping cream
- In a large bowl (or Kitchenaid), cream together ½ cup butter, ½ cup peanut butter, white, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
- Add egg and beat well.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
- Add oatmeal and stir.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use your teaspoon cookie scoop) onto baking sheet and press each mound down to form ¼ inch thick cookies.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 9 – 10 minutes.
- Cream butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter and the cream.
- Spread filling onto half of the cooled cookies, then top with the other half to form sandwiches.
After they came out of the oven, I let the cookies cool and made the filling.
I had Josh (one of my toughest taste testers) try them and he immediately said “OH MY GOODNESS. THESE ARE SO GOOD.” Yes, just like that. Ha! I asked if he wanted one of the mess up cookies (just a weird shape) and he said yes immediately.
The one problem is that they don’t make a ton. Since you need two cookies for each, you’ll only get about 13 total depending on the size that you make each one. I would double the batch next time to make sure that there are plenty for everyone!
