Peanutbutter Honey Cookie Sandwiches

Thursday, July 17, 2014


Guys, these things are a messy, soft, yummy treat. If you like peanut butter cookies, and are a fan of oozing honey filling (if you're not then you should be), you will love these. I just made these and brought them to my best friend in the universe, Kaitlyn, as a little housewarming gift. She seemed to like them. I think the filling is what makes the cookie, and gives them that something different and unique. This filling also makes a great topper for my rosemary muffins, it's pretty similar to the topping I suggested in that recipe, but a little more honey flavored. Try mixing and matching the two! 

Much like my last few tasty posts, this recipe is my own alteration of a recipe from this amazing book. You should seriously get it. Like right now. It's on sale at Barnes and Noble, and it's full of tasty recipes, all of which have beautiful photos, which for me is a must.  





::Ingredients::

::Cookies::
1 cups softened butter
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
pinch of salt

::Filling::
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey

::Steps::

1. Preheat your cooking box to 375°F and either line your cookie sheets with parchment paper, or do what I do and give they a good spray with Pam for baking.

2. In a medium bowl whip butter and sugar together until fluff, and then beat in the eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter. Next, sift the flour into the mixture, and add salt. 

3. Use your hands to roll the dough into one inch balls and place them about an inch apart on your cookie sheets, then use a fork (or your thumb or whatever pleases you) to flatten them a bit. 

4. Bake for around 12 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottoms and edges. Take out and let cool on a wire rack.

5. While they bake, start your filling! Simply place the butter, sugar, and honey into a small bowl, and whisk until all creamy and blended together. Done! Mine was a smidge runny, so I threw in some more powdered sugar just to thicken it up, but you mix yours to the texture of your hearts content. And, as always, eat at least one while they're hot.

Love & Sunshine,
