Smashed peanut butter sandwich cookies

I felt the need to bring in another treat tomorrow, so I felt a peanut butter sandwich cookie would partner well with the oatmeal chocolate chip treats. I opted for a chocolate filling bc peanut butter and chocolate are a perfect marriage.

Cookie ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp salt

Directions – cream butter, shortening, peanut butter, sugar, 2 tbs water, and powdered sugar. Add eggs. Fold in remaining ingredients. Spoon out 2 tbs of dough. Roll into balls. Flatten slightly and sprinkle with sugar. Chill 3 hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350. Stagger on a cookie sheet, lined with nonstick baking liners. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Edges will be light golden. Middle may be seem a little doughy. Let sit on sheet 10 minutes. Cool completely.
