Chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookie recipe

Chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookies

So for Christmas i always make my boyfriend a few different types of cookies and after seeing this recipe in the taste of home magazine i knew this was a winner . I changed up the recipe a little the original calls for cream cheese in the filling and i used butter and it also had chopped peanut butter cups around the edges but i didn't use those either. Here is the recipe..

cake part:

1/4 cup of softened unsalted butter softened

4 0z of cream cheese

2 eggs

1 tablespoon of good vanilla extract

1 package of chocolate cake mix

1/4 cup of all purpose flour


3/4 cup of smooth peanut butter

4 oz of unsalted butter

2 1/2 cups of confection sugar

3 tbsp of milk

1 tbsp of vanilla

Preheat over to 375

in a large mixing bowl cream butter and cream cheese till fluffy

beat in eggs and vanilla

add in cake mix and flour in 3 parts and mix well

roll in 1 inch balls and place on a ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart

bake for 6-8 min and then let cool for 1 min before placing onto a cooling rack

while cooling make the filling beat peanut butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy

add sugar one cup at a time then beat in milk and vanilla

spread the mixture onto one cookie and top with another and your all ready to enjoy!

A side note i always use unsalted butter for baking but in this recipe you can use regular butter if you like.
