Oatmeal PB Sandwich Cookies

Sometimes you just need to bake something, well I do anyway.

Last night I made a deliciously satisfying cookie.

It has all my favorites in it…

Oatmeal.

Walnuts.

Cinnamon.

Brown Sugar.

Peanut Butter.

The original recipe can be found here.

For the cookies:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tbs. softened butter
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 3 Tbs milk

Cream sugar and butter in a bowl with an electric mixer, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and mix for another minute.

In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients. Add to the creamed mixture.

Using a 1 tsp spoon, scoop dough onto cookie sheet lined with parchment (for easy clean up).

Bake for about 7 minutes in a 350F oven.

To make the filling: Beat peanut butter, butter and sugar with a handheld mixer. Add milk 1 Tbs at a time until it is spreading consistency.

Sandwich like sized cookies together with peanut butter filling and try not to eat too many at once :)
