These cookies are so yummy...kids love them...they remind my son of a Nutter Butter only better, cause they're home made...something about the time and care put into them makes them even better...The cookies are just the right crunchiness with the soft peanut butter centers...I use extra crunchy PB in the cookie and the filling...the toasted pieces of nuts give the cookies added flavor...you can use creamy PB..totally up to you... Enjoy! My photos

How To Make delicious peanut butter filled pb cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or greasing lightly.
  • 2
    In a medium sized bowl combine the brown sugar, white sugar, peanut butter, shortening, salt, baking soda, and vanilla; beat until smooth.
  • 3
    Add the egg and beat until mixed in. Stir in the oatmeal and flour until mixed in evenly.
  • 4
    Using my fingers, I pinch about 1 tablespoon of dough and place in a somewhat rounded mound on cookie sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart. ( or can drop by spoonful) With the bottom of a glass, dip in sugar and flatten down each cookie to about 1/4 inch thick. Dipping in sugar after each cookie.
  • 5
    Place cookies in oven and bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 6
    Remove from sheet to a cooling rack.
  • 7
    Make filling: Mix the 3 ingredients in a bowl, until well blended.
  • 8
    Spread the frosting on the bottom of half of the cookies and then top with the other half to create the sandwich cookies.
