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.
I don’t remember the first time that I tried Nutter Butters but I do remember liking them right away. They were one of the pre-packaged snacks that I looked forward to. I had no idea that you could make them at home and had never tried until I found this recipe.
This nutter butter recipe is the ultimate in creamy, sweet, salty with a little bit of crunch. It makes the most decadent cookie and I don’t take that term lightly.
Nutter Butter Cookies
At first I wasn’t sure how well they’d turn out since the batter was pretty wet. They are more of a “whoopie pie” type consistency. This is what the batter looked like right before I scooped them onto the baking sheets.
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!
