“The Peanut Butter Cookies alone are delicious, but pair them with a fudge filling and the results are perfect. Absolutely Perfect. :) I brought these to a choir fundraiser, and they were gone before the first song was finished! I never wrote down exactly how many this made, so the yield is based on my rather fuzzy recollection - I'll update the next time I make these.”
18 sandwich cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Mix sugars, butter, peanut butter and egg. Gradually stir in flour baking soda & powder, and salt.
  2. Shape dough in 3/4 inch balls and flatten slightly with a fork if you like the cross hatching pattern. Bake until set but not hard, and golden brown on the bottom, about 10 minutes.
  3. If you're going to sandwich them with the chocolate, let them cool entirely before doing so. Match up cookies by size so you've got a more uniform sandwich when you're done.
  4. For the filling, mix the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla together, and melt over low heat, or in the microwave. Spoon into a ziploc bag, close the bag, and snip a corner to pipe onto the flat side of a cookie. Top with a second cookie, flat side towards chocolate. Attempt to not devour in one sitting. Fail miserably, die happily. :).
